Barry Flinchbaugh - "Kings and Kingmakers"
Barry Flinchbaugh was one of America’s leading experts on agricultural policy for the last few decades. But friends and family alike would probably agree that his greatest joy was teaching. Whether enlightening legislators on Capitol Hill, lecturing to students at Kansas State University, or sharing information with farmers and ranchers at K-State Research and Extension field days and workshops, Barry Flinchbaugh was always ready to share his knowledge with anyone who was interested – and he did it with unmistakable flair. Here, we present audio from one of his most well-known and frequently-referenced presentations, “Kings and Kingmakers.” This was recorded at K-State Research and Extension’s 2017 annual conference, held on the K-State campus. Flinchbaugh died on November 2nd, 2020. He was 78 years old.
