The Times-Gazette - 4/3/2017
Thirty-two McClain FFA members attended Temple Grandin’s lecture at Wilmington College on March 30. Grandin is a renowned author and advocate for farm animal welfare and persons afflicted with autism. Grandin was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2 and is currently a professor of animal science at Colorado State University. Grandin has designed multiple livestock handling facilities in order to decrease animal stress. Nearly half of the cattle in North America utilize the center track restrainer system. Her designs are used in the United States and three other continents. Grandin’s lecture helped students understand the importance of livestock handling and that if they keep their stress down, the animals will be more productive.
