New Year, Same Ole Me!
Thanks for making it through your holiday season and tuning back in to Ranch Raised. At this point I feel like I need congratulate all of you if you made it through the weekend without frostbite or any major cold weather complications. WhooHoo! That was a blast, I mean not so much, more of an arctic blast.
So, here we are on the front side of 2022. New week, new month, new year with lots of great stories and tales coming your way with a few recipes in the mix. By the way my oldest daughter made carrot cake last night and I will say that she can totally take the reins as the cream cheese frosting maker in the house! It was delicious and a perfect complement to my coffee and also served as my kids breakfast this morning. Hey, it is what it is. Nobody complained. The kids are enjoying their last day at home of their Christmas break, so in ranch terms, us parents are going to work them like busy beavers today before we lose them back to school.

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.
