Don’t Forget Temple!

A looong time ago, I posted about the HBO movie ‘Temple Grandin’ that was going to be released soon (‘Temple Grandin – HBO Biopic’ 11/17/09).  Well soon means this Saturday, February 6 at 7pm on HBO.  I repeat, Saturday February 6th at 7 pm.  The movie displays Dr. Grandin’s life from high school (when she was expelled) to the creation of Grandin Livestock Handling Systems.

Dr. Grandin is a professor at Colorado State University (CSU) and a pioneer for the livestock industry, designing over 1/3 of the world’s livestock handling systems.  She has written several books, hundreds of articles and speaks to conferences and universities on a regular basis.  In fact, she will be in Manhattan, KS for the International Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare.  Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend because I’ll be on my way to South Africa – but that’s for another day. You can learn more about the Beef Cattle Welfare Symposium and how to register for it by visiting this site

Goodbye and don’t forget to turn your tv to HBO this Saturday, February 6th at 7pm for the movie ‘Temple Grandin’
Until next time,
