Thanks for starting your week with me right here on Ranch Raised! So, has anyone made their own foaming hand soap yet? What, you missed my recipe last week??? Well, head on over to the Your Ag Network website or app to find my foaming hand soap recipe. It is also on the Ranch Raised FB page. It is super easy and you will love the results! While you are there, make sure and check out the 3 part interview series on Hot Barn Report with Senator Mike Rounds, from SD! Monte James had a great conversation with Senator Rounds. If you are involved in farming or ranching, you will want to check it out.
So back to this regularly scheduled program……
Ranch dogs are to ranching, as tractors are to farming….or at least here on the Jones Ranch, we could not imagine life without our pack of 4-legged ranch hands. When it comes to ranch and herding dogs, everyone has their favorite breed that they are loyal to. I can’t say that I have a lot of experience with the Shepards and the Heelers, because we are a Border Collie family through and through.
I know, I know, you either ARE a Border Collie lover or you are not. This week I will tell you why we are head over heels for the Border Collie breed, even having 3 generations of them right here on our ranch that we have raised.
So come back tomorrow to hear me brag about Border Collies!

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.
