Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - A Ranch Wife's letter to Santa!

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!

Christmas for a Ranch Wife! 

As I sit down at the end of a very long day, 

I decided to let Santa know what this ranch wife had to say. 

I want some of the dishes like seen on the movie, Beauty & The Beast. 

The kind that wash themselves, they don’t need to dance and sing, I could care about that the least. 

Into my freezer just throw a casserole or two. 

Certainly, the elves know how to whip up some enchiladas or beef stew. 

All joking aside I need a new chore coat. 

I caught it on my saddle horn and ripped it from my waist on up to my throat. 

And if we are talking some big items just for a surprise 

A 6 person hot tub would be just my size. 

If I were to error on the side of things that I need  

I should really be asking for a new washer & dryer to bring my never ending laundry situation up to speed. 

While we are talking about the laundry situation, 

Go ahead and dump a sleigh full of pairs of socks here, no need for fancy presentation. 

Then take all these mismatched socks that I have yet to fold. 

Dump them from up there in the heavens, maybe their match is at someone else’s household. 

Don’t worry I won’t be selfish and waste this letter all on me, 

I’ve got kids and a husband that have their wants and needs. 

Actually, on second thought the socks for everyone will do, 

Unless you run on to a good sale on underwear, bring us some of those too. 

Come back tomorrow because I’ve got more to tell Santa!

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.
