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!
Happy Monday! Thank you for starting your week with me, right here on Ranch Raised!
After a busy week away from home last week, there was nothing better than having my husband make the coffee this morning and get back in to the routine of getting the kids on the bus! They all seemed to get along just fine without dear old mom. Infact, when mom’s away it seems like the cats will play. I came home to find a new resident on the ranch. Our oldest daughter talked my husband in to hitting a bull sale while mom wasn’t home and it seems that she is continuing to secure her future in the purebred Hereford business. Oh well, I guess is she keeps herself broke and busy in the cattle business she won’t have time to time or money to get into illegal mischief.
This week, I have some stories to tell about my recent travels! From the Sandhills to Black Hills my eyes are looking all around to find the beauty before me. Maybe I am too deep of a thinker, but I tend to look for the lessons that guide me on my path and boy, I felt like I had some lessons divinely put in front of me last week.
So, stay right here with me on Ranch Raised because I have some good ole tales from the trails I traveled recently! Join me right back here tomorrow to hear all about my adventures. Never miss an episode of Ranch Raised on the Your Ag Network app or website!

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.
