Ranch Raised – Episode 200!

These anniversary episodes always leave me a little nostalgic. In the beginning I had no idea how this was going to work or where I was going with it. Monte and Jesse and from Your Ag Network just kept reassuring me that they knew I had real stories to tell from rural America. So it began. And then it kept rolling. And it does seem that I always have something on my heart to share. [READ MORE…]

Ranch Raised – Episode 199

Yesterday I shared from the Farmer’s Almanac that the ‘dog’ in ‘Dog Days of Summer’ was in reference to, the brightest star in the sky, Sirius which is a part of the Greater Dog constellation.

Ranch Raised – Episode 198

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “the “Dog Days” of summer are from July 3 to August 11 each year. They’re usually the hottest and most unbearable days of the season.

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 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.
