Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - Goodbye to the season of gold!

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!


With the last day of November here, I guess it is time to say good bye to the season that carries more gold in its pockets than any other! Thanks for seeing the month out the door with me, right here on Ranch Raised. 

I feel a little melancholy saying goodbye to November. I guess this means fall is really over. Honestly, we have had a beautiful fall in my area. Temperatures have been moderate. Harvest was able to roll right along. Calves are weaning well, haired up, and eating great. 

We all know that December becomes such a sprint and a rat race with so many events, I guess I just long for the days of fall that seem to linger and coast. There is something about entering into December that hits you with the reality that another year is almost over, which gets to be a sensitive issue for those of us parents. Did we accomplish enough? Did we spend enough time with our kids? Why do they have to grow so fast? Why do the years have to go by so quickly? 

Okay, I am probably just rambling. But, maybe this is my reminder that we can all enjoy one day at a time and stay focused on the most important things, and that is the people and loved ones in our lives. So, slow down. Pull over and talk to that neighbor. Go to lunch with that special person. Have those movie nights, snuggled up with the kids. 

Don’t forget that you can check out all past episodes of RR on the YAN app or website! Take a look around to find ag news and markets to keep you in the loop!

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.
