Farming For Profit, Not Price

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!

Adios 2021! But before we slam the door the year, let’s celebrate the #1 highlight of the year! Without a doubt, it would have to be the conception of Ranch Raised!

When the owners of Your Ag Network, Monte James and Jesse Stroud, approached me about taking off and creating my own show, I initially thought, “you can’t be serious.” I am not a radio professional. I was just doing guest appearances on Hot Barn Report, once a week giving cattle industry updates.

But, they continued to assure me that they thought I would have plenty of content. I assume they must have been thinking of my stories about raising our feral children on the wide-open prairie, tales from the dusty trails and a few well-loved ranch recipes sprinkled in.

I am thankful to Your Ag Network for their belief in me! I am thankful to the best radio stations in the nation for playing Ranch Raised and the sponsors who give this show their seal of approval. I am grateful to all of you, our faithful listeners.

While I have no way of knowing what 2022 holds in this big, ole wild world, I can’t wait for the opportunity to share it with all of you! I hope to make you laugh and smile. Maybe I will make you recall your days of yester year growing up on a ranch. And hopefully I inspire you to try a new recipe or two.

So here we are signing off from 2021! Meet me right back here on the flip side, in 2022, also known as Monday. I just wanted to be a little dramatic. Happy New Year and stay safe!

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.

Cattle producers are her people. She will meet you at the county fair, at the sale barn, or anywhere the dusty trail leads.
