Dan Flanagan Inducted into Kentucky Poultry Federation's Hall of Fame

Dan Flanagan, who sits on both the AgriBank and Farm Credit Council board of directors, was voted unanimously to be inducted into the Kentucky Poultry Federation (KPF) Hall of Fame. He was officially inducted at the 18th Annual KPF Festival and awards banquet in Louisville, Ky. Flanagan joins a small group of KPF Hall of Fame members, who have all helped Kentucky’s poultry industry develop into the thriving economic driver that it is today.

Flanagan is a first-generation farmer in Campbellsville, Ky., where he is the president of 4-E Flanagan Farms and Saloma Chick Liter Co., raising poultry, grain and produce. Flanagan purchased his first farm at the age of 18, and his passion for agriculture and fierce determination is evident in the success of his farming enterprise which encompasses more than 850 acres today.

“I am extremely humbled and honored to be inducted into the Kentucky Poultry Federation Hall of Fame,” Flanagan said, “I am fortunate to be counted among such a talented and prestigious group of inductees. I look forward to continuing my work, not only on my own farm, but also working alongside the Kentucky Poultry Federation and my fellow farmers to build a stronger poultry industry in Kentucky and across the United States.”

Flanagan has represented poultry growers on KPF’s board for numerous years and is currently the KPF’s Festival Chair. Jamie Guffey, executive director of KPF, said, “When I started working within the poultry industry after college, I had the opportunity to work with Dan on weekly basis. The knowledge and experiences I have gained working with him have helped me with my personal and career advancement.”

KPF was organized in 1957 as a civic and education non-profit corporation. It exists for the purpose of fostering, promoting and encouraging the improvement of production and marketing of all types of poultry, poultry products, eggs and egg products in Kentucky.

Flanagan has been an active member of both the agriculture community in Kentucky as well as in the state government. In addition to serving on the KPF, AgriBank and Farm Credit Council boards, he also serves on the Kentucky Governor’s Council on Postsecondary Education, the Kentucky Agriculture Council, and previously served as a state officer and member of the Kentucky Jaycees Executive Committee. He is also the current Vice President of the Kentucky Poultry Federation and the past secretary of the Kentucky Soybean Association. He also holds leadership positions in his church, and has served for many years as a bi-vocational minister.
