SS-AAEA Person of the Year: Trent Loos

The Student Section of the American Agricultural Economics Association held its first symposium this year, and gave its first SS-AAEA Person of the Year Award. The recipient is asked to give the Keynote Address at the symposium, and as we expected, Mr. Loos' speech was educational, inspiring, and entertaining.

This superb speech can be seen here. If you are seeking a guest speaker for a conference or other agricultural occasion, I strongly encourage you to consider Mr. Loos. Just watch his speech, and you will understand why!

Parts of the speech may even be useful in a class lecture. I especially enjoyed his discussion of hormone use in beef production.
