Agricultural issues and advocacy for Nebraska livestock production will be center stage on Thursday, March 14 at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture.

Trent Loos is a radio commentator and agricultural producer who farms with his family near Hazard, Nebraska, and a spokesman on issues in national and global food production.

He will give a public presentation for students, farmers, ranchers and anyone wanting to learn about advocacy on behalf of the agriculture industry.

The cost of the meal is $10 per person, and will be limited to 50 advance registrations.

A meal will be served with the program, which is sponsored by the NCTA Collegiate Cattlemen and Animal Science department.

The meal begins at 6:30 p.m. in the “The Barn” — the NCTA Student Union on campus, said Meredith Cable, assistant professor of animal science and faculty advisor for the NCTA Collegiate Cattlemen.

Parking can be east of the student union or in the lot directly south, which is located near Seventh St. and Prentice Ave.
