Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - Thankful for the harvest and the harvesters!

Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!

Welcome to this mid-week edition of Ranch Raised. For some families harvest is coming to a close while others are still working hard to bring in the crop. For some families the early spring born calves are weaned and to the bunk enjoying the daily feast they receive from their trusted farmer. For some families late and summer born calves are enjoying their last days at their momma’s sides.  

No matter where your family is in the fall and harvest landscape, we all give thanks! I thought this poem by Marie Williams of Oklahoma said it perfectly. 

I Give You Thanks! 

For harvest moon and leaves of gold. 

For autumn beauty I behold. 

I Give You Thanks! 

For dreams fulfilled, for peace & hope, and abundant grace you’ve bestowed. 

I Give You Thanks! 

For gentle rains, for sunny days, for misty mornings, for fields of hay. 

I Give You Thanks! 

For answered prayers and tears you wiped. For restful sleep all through the night. 

I Give You Thanks! 

For seeds to sow and opened doors. For all of these and so much more. 

I Give You Thanks! 

The life we live feeding the world can be full of stress and challenges. There are sleepless nights and so much adversity. Your Ag Network celebrates the farmers and ranchers of this great country who take pride in what they day 365 days of the year. Give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back for bringing in your 2023 harvest whether it be on the hoof or in grain.

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.

Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her former role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.

You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.

Cattle producers are her people. She will meet you at the county fair, at the sale barn, or anywhere the dusty trail leads.
