Trent Loos is bringing ag humor to NW Iowa

By Staff | Mar 13, 2009

Trent Loos, pictured with his youngest daughter Landri, will be speaking in Siux Center Thursday night.

SIOUX CENTER – Prices got you down?

Uncertainty causing you to teeter between insanity and common sense?

Just need to get away from the farm for a night?

Perhaps you should consider joining other farmers and city folks for a night with Trent Loos, of Loos Tales, at 7 p.m. in the BJ Haan Auditorium, located on the Dordt College Campus.

A cheese social will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Loos Tales is a popular radio program that boasts a listening audience of 4 million. Speaking from his own life experiences, Loos tells the story of modern farm production. Loos was raised on a diversified farm near Quincy, Ill. A sixth generation farmer, he and his wife Kelli enjoy working cattle, training horses and raising their three daughters on their ranch in central Nebraska.

Loos could best be described as an advocate for livestock producers and will address concerns in agriculture while in Sioux Center. As an ‘agricultural activist’ Loos will provide insight to growing concerns about educating consumers about where their food comes.

“I will be speaking about how we can do a better job of shaping public image with the folks,” said Loos, who is returning to this area for the third time.

His presentation will interest rural and city residents alike. “Non-farm folks will see that some of what they have been led to believe is not true,” he said. “Nutrition values have been misrepresented.”

The Loos Tales Social is sponsored by Central Vet Clinic, Deluxe Feeds Incorporated, MidwestEnRG Flakes and DeWild Grant Reckert and Associates.

The Western Iowa Dairy Alliance will be selling $2 raffle tickets for Bessie, a hand-crafted rocking Holstein cow. WIDA is a dairy producer-driven organization working to unify the dairy industry in western Iowa.

Advance tickets for the Loos Tales Social can be purchased for $15, and $20 at the door. For additional information or to purchase tickets contact Kayla Lyon at (712) 441-0893.
