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!
Happy Friday crew! We have made it through another busy week on the ranch with no hope of slowing down. Have you whipped up the Buckaroo Brownie recipe yet? This weekend would be a perfect time to give it whirl or a whisk. I promise it will shoot the moon over any box brownie recipe you have ever made and it is so easy even kids can do it. Take a look at the ingredients, chances are you have everything right in your pantry. You can find the recipe on the Your Ag Network app and website and the brand-new Ranch Raised Facebook page.
Our big girls are showing cattle this weekend in Kearney, NE which is not too far from home. Competing in that arena is only a small part of the experience. I have told you that I am a student of life. I look at any situation as a classroom. Next week I will share more on what that means to my family and I. It just might help you change your perspective on what a quick trip to the grocery store or the feed store could mean for your kids and even yourself.
If you have some windshield time in the combine or hauling cows home. Check out all of the programs on the Your Ag Network menu on their website and app. Learn about the fall calf run offerings and at some of the best barns in the nation on Hot Barn Report. I gave a special cattle industry report today on that program. Are you behind on what has been going on in the rodeo world? Catch up on the Territorial Rodeo Update with Monte James.
Have a great weekend and tune in next week to more tales from the dusty trails on Ranch Raised.

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 3 daughters 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 current 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 that is broadcast on 60 radio stations with coverage in 9 states, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and highlights R-CALF’s work on 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 ranch.
