A Woman who works with Cattle

I’m sure you have heard about the Animal Scientist who made a huge splash at the Emmy’s the other night. Who would have thought a film about a woman who works with cattle and is known for her work with slaughterhouses and feedyards would make it to the big screen with such commotion? Here is a short series of videos that share a little about Dr. Temple Grandin.

Have you seen the documentary featuring Temple Grandin’s life with autism and work in the cattle industry? Let me know what you think about it and her influence on livestock production today. I have my own opinions, but I want to hear yours.


  1. I don’t really think the bug fuss is made over her accomplishments so much as it is over having accomplished all she did while fighting such a personal battle herself. AUTISM. Granted everything she did is great for handling animals and I know she was motivated by trying to calm them and trying to handle them in humane ways.

    I think the general public was actually more interested in her personal battle with autism and then how she handled the “good ole boys” that tried their best to stop her. She is one of the best role models for our children and young adults who have to battle autism on a daily basis.

  2. I have not yet had the opportunity to see the documentary about Temple Grandin. I have a younger brother who was diagnosed with Autism at a young age. He is now 8 years old and doing very well in school and with others. Temple Grandin gives me hope that one day my little brother will be able to do something great just as she has. She overcame so much and went on to revolutionize the cattle industry. All I can say is she’s inspirational.
