A native of Wisconsin, Dr. Reinhardt received a B.S. in Meat and Animal Science from the University of Wisconsin, an M.S. in Nutrition from Texas A&M University, and a Ph.D. in Nutrition from good ol’ Kansas State.

After 11 years in the feed and animal health industries while living in Nebraska, he and his wife Nicoel, their four children and black lab are getting settled here in Manhattan. Dr. Reinhardt was hired on at Kansas State University in the Fall of 2005 as the Feedlot Extension Specialist with a 20% research and 80% extension appointment.
