Highlights of the Conference

Keynote presenters will include agricultural activist Trent Loos. Trent has long believed in the true value of our food supply as a means of national security for our great country. Farmers who feed us and the dedicated United States military personnel are the two most unsung and vitally important factions of our population. Both are undervalued and misunderstood, but Trent is working to share their message.

AND, the Peterson Farm Bros, sensational YouTube parody musicians. The Peterson Farm Brothers are siblings who farm together with their parents near Assaria, KS. they are known for producing entertaining and educational videos on their YouTube channel: ThePetersonFarmBros. In June of 2012, they created a parody music video about farming, entitled "I'm Farming and I Grow It." It was a parody of the song "I'm Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO. The song was a viral hit on YouTube and received over 6 million views in over 200 countries in just over 2 weeks. It took their agriculture-focused message and spread it all over the world!
