Educational video debuts at Ag in the Classroom summer conference
An educational video aimed at explaining pork production to elementary school children will be premiered at the Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom summer conference Friday, Aug. 3 at the Embassy Suites, Norman.
The video features nationally-known humorist and columnist Trent Loos discussing the humane care of animals and the many nutritional benefits of pork. Loos, a Nebraska farmer and rancher, is the keynote speaker for the conference which begins at 9 a.m. Loos hosts a daily radio show, Loos Tales, and is founder of Faces of Agriculture, a non-profit organization putting the human element back into the production of food.
Copies of the video, sponsored by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Committee, will be distributed without charge to every school district in the state.
More than 300 Oklahoma teachers are expected to attend the summer conference.
