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 counting down the days until we celebrate the 200th episode of Ranch Raised, on Friday! So thanks for tuning your radio dial right here to Ranch Raised!
Beating the heat can be tough during these “Dog Days of Summer.” Thankfully, it is National Ice Cream Month, so we have to celebrate! But, a few of my other favorite ways to beat the heat are by eating foods that are cold, like cool, crisp watermelon. To encourage more water consumption in my house, we are adding slices of citrus fruits and cucumbers to our ice water. Oh My Goodness, so cool and refreshing. My kids seriously cannot get enough. Does anyone else enjoy cucumber slices or fruit in their water to infuse a sugar free burst of flavor?
But, I want to hear your best tips and tricks to beat the heat! I’m all ears, so leave your answer on the Ranch Raised FB page, which will enter you in the drawing for the end of the week Your Ag Network Swag Pack Giveaways!
Don’t forget if you miss an episode of RR, you can always catch the play back on the Your Ag Network App or website. The more questions you answer this week, the greater your chances of winning one of those two swag packs!
Once again, today’s entry question is, “What are your best tips and tricks to beat the heat during these Dog Days of Summer?”

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.
