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 made it! Thanks for tuning in to celebrate the 200th episode of Ranch Raised.
These anniversary episodes always leave me a little nostalgic. In the beginning I had no idea how this was going to work or where I was going with it. Monte and Jesse and from Your Ag Network just kept reassuring me that they knew I had real stories to tell from rural America. So it began. And then it kept rolling. And it does seem that I always have something on my heart to share.
I am so very thankful for the roster of hometown radio stations that continues to grow, that choose to play Ranch Raised. I am very thankful for the sponsors that have jumped aboard. And I am humbled by the listeners that encourage and support me.
As we round out of Dog Days of Summer giveaway, I have final entry question. When the mercury cranks up, you know that it is county fair season. You may be going for a funnel cake; you may be going for the carnival or maybe you are exhibiting or supporting those 4-H and FFA kids. Go to the Ranch Raised FB page and tell me which county fair you will be checking out! Will it be Webster County, NE; Adams County, ND; Lee County, IA; or Butte Co, SD? Tell me!
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. Let’s give away a couple of swag packs! The more questions you answer this week, the greater your chances of winning!
Once again, today’s entry question is, “What county fair will be checking out?” Cheers to the next 200 episodes of 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.
