He furthered his education at Iowa Lakes Community College where he majored in Dairy Science. On August 13, 1994, Carl married Jan Glodowski at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Scribner.

Flanagan’s Boys Town, past leader of the Eastside Livestock 4-H Club, Cuming County 4-H council member, and a Young Dairy Leaders Institute attendee. Carl was a member of the Nebraska Holstein Association, Nebraska Ayrshire Association – serving as current president, the Inter-Breed Dairy Council, and a lifetime member of the National Dairy Shrine.

In anticipation of the 100th Cuming County Fair this past year, he assisted with putting together the Fair’s history.
