Trent Loos Joins Protect The Harvest’s Advisory Committee

Trent Loos officially joined the Protect The Harvest Advisory Committee in May 2021. Prior to his official recognition as a member of our Advisory Committee, Trent has been an unofficial partner and advisor since the inception of Protect The Harvest, working together with us on various initiatives and projects and sharing information we believe is critical for the American public to know.

Raised on a diversified farm near Quincy, IL, Trent got his start in swine production with a runt pig when he was five. He and his family now live on a farm in Central Nebraska and raise show pigs, beef cattle, ranch horses, and butcher hogs that are sold nationwide. Trent earned an American Farmer Degree in FFA and has won numerous awards at state and national swine shows. Trent is an advisory board member for the Team Purebred junior swine association and active in local 4-H, FFA and youth leadership programs.

To share the positive story of production agriculture has been the mission of Trent Loos since he walked into a radio station in Spearfish, SD in 2000 and asked to have his own program. That dream of this sixth generation United States farmer, often touted as an agricultural activist, came true on January 8, 2001 when “Loos Tales” aired on radio station KMZU in Missouri. Today, 3 million listeners on nearly 100 radio stations in 19 states hear the show every day, along with online listeners worldwide. In addition to “Loos Tales”, Trent hosts and produces “Rural Route,” and “Dakota Trails and Tales” which are available on numerous radio outlets at his website “Loos from the Hip” is his daily video blog posted on Facebook and YouTube. Trent has shared his message in 48 different states, Japan, Australia, Ireland, and Canada with great enthusiasm for an industry he truly believes in. He encourages producers to stand up and proudly tell consumers about life on their family farming operations.

In 2008, Trent was recognized by West Quest as the “Voice of Rural America.” His Loos Tales columns are printed weekly in the High Plains Journal and reprinted in countless other publications. He enjoys volunteering to support our troops with the All-American Beef Battalion. Trent served on the Agriculture Advisory Committee for President Donald Trump.
