Loos Urges Farmers to Take Their Message to the Streets

EAST EARL, Pa. — Trent Loos, a sixth-generation Nebraskan rancher and radio show host, challenged nearly 200 attendees to take a stand and defend agriculture.
Loos delivered his message Monday at a meeting sponsored by Renaissance Nutrition at Shady Maple Smorgasbord.

From his travels around the U.S., Loos said that most consumers “don’t have a clue that it takes a farm to make food.” He is often approached by people asking him if he is a “real cowboy.” He stressed the importance of our neighbors understanding that “everything lives, everything dies and death with a purpose gives full meaning to life.”

On the wake of an ABC broadcast that portrayed dairy farmers as cruel to their animals, Loos’s message held extra significance. He said that Americans have a distant view of farming but no understanding of agriculture as a business.
