Lake Land College alumna named best livestock lawyer

 January 16, 2014

Lake Land College alumna, Cari Rincker of New York City, has been named the “Best Livestock Lawyer” for the third year in a row in the Best of Barns Competition. 

The Best of the Barns is a nationwide awards program, held annually to recognize leading businesses and individuals in the livestock and agriculture industry. The winners of the 2013 Best of the Barns Awards will be announced at the Ranch House Designs booth at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, and recognized in the January 2014 issue of The Showtimes Magazine.

Rincker attended Lake Land College and received her associate degree in Agriculture Science. During her time at the college, she had a successful career on its livestock judging team, including being selected as the first place winner in oral reasons at the National Western Livestock Show and first place overall at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Upon graduation from Lake Land, Rincker transferred to Texas A & M University where she received a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and was a member of both the Livestock and Meat Animal Evaluation judging teams. After Texas A & M, Rinker returned to Illinois to complete a master’s degree in Ruminant Nutrition at the University of Illinois, where her concentration was in beef feedlot nutrition. Rinker moved on to complete her Juris Doctor from Pace University, School of Law, in White Plains, New York.
