Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - January is National Meat Month!

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!

We are almost through the month. Thanks for hanging on with me right here on Ranch Raised. 

Before we close out the month of January, we need to observe the fact that January is National Meat Month since most people listening either produce meat or enjoy consuming it! 

This month-long celebration of meat is an opportunity for people across the country to share their favorite meat dishes. Restaurants may feature special dishes throughout the month to celebrate fresh cuts of meat and their signature preparations. National Meat Month is a chance to celebrate the rich diversity of meat and meat-based dishes found across the country, as well as the robust meat industry that feeds most of the population. 

Eating meat has several health benefits. Meat is high in necessary amino acids like protein, vitamins B12 and B6, phosphorus, riboflavin, and iron.  

According to data pulled from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United States and Portugal are tied for highest overall meat consumption per capita. The average person in both countries eats 327.8 lb a year. In the U.S., chicken is the most widely consumed meat. 

We celebrated National Meat Month by throwing some ribeyes on the grill after a long day of ranching. I cook with ground beef almost every day. However, most mornings start with sausage or bacon on the Jones Ranch. So, I would say we are big fans of “Meat Month” around these parts!

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.
