Justin Rhinehart was raised in East Tennessee working with livestock and tobacco. He earned a bachelor of science in agriculture and extension education from UT. He received a master of science in reproductive physiology from the University of Kentucky where he investigated the use of dietary fat supplementation to alleviate the negative effects of endophyte-infected tall fescue on reproductive performance of beef heifers. He then earned a PhD from the faculty of reproductive physiology at West Virginia University where his dissertation focused on pregnancy loss in cattle associated with changes in steroid hormone concentrations and placental development. After completing his terminal degree, Rhinehart served for three years at the Mississippi State University as an extension beef cattle specialist. During his academic career, Rhinehart has developed a strong desire to apply his education through the extension arm of the land-grant system.
