If you are like me, you are looking for ways to keep that grocery cart in the center of the budget lane. I have had to become more creative and more aware of my buying habits at the grocery store. Today I want to share with you, what I am doing differently at the grocery store and in my kitchen. [READ MORE…]
There seems to be a lot of uncertainty and unrest among people like me, that grow food and people like many of you, that consume food. Consumers are being forced to pay highly inflated food prices. I know I watch everything I put in my grocery cart and question carefully whether or not it is a want or a need. The days of $1 loaf of bread are over. I carefully think about every meal as I stroll the aisles. What used to be pantry staples are now considered luxury items. [READ MORE…]
When I talk about the cattle industry lighting a fire in my soul, it is no wonder. I am surrounded by lots of like-minded people who feel the same way. Infact, I live in Custer County, NE, the #2 beef cow county in the entire nation with over 100,000 cows in it. Cattle are the economic driver of my county and my state, like many other states.

Karina's Recipie Book
About Karina Jones
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.
