Loos also can frequently be found addressing agricultural and non-agricultural groups alike. Among his favorite audiences are our nation's youth where he takes the opportunity to talk with them about the importance of food as a matter of national security and the value of their involvement in today's food production system.
Trent was raised on a diversified farm near Quincy, IL. He entered the hog business at a young age and has been involved in livestock production ever since. He and his wife Kelli operate a purebred Limousin and Angus herd. They enjoy working cattle, training horses and raising their three daughters on their ranch in central Nebraska.
Speaking up for agriculture
Trent travels the country motivating and educating his audience on issues related to animal agriculture and food production. His audiences vary in age, background, mission and profession, but they all come away enthused about bridging the gap between food producers and consumers. When addressing youth groups, Trent emphasizes the importance and pride associated with being involved in U.S. food production in the future.
