MIAMI, Okla. - NEO hosted Dr. Temple Grandin Thursday night, a professor from Colorado State University. Grandin spoke about the potential impact of using animal behavior techniques on the farm instead of resorting to force. She says the stress can hurt cattle in a variety of ways.
"Animals that get scared at and agitated during handling are going to be less productive," Grandin explained. "Animals that remain calm have better weight gains and better reproduction."
Grandin was part of the Distinguished Lecture Series at NEO. She also lectures as an autism self advocate.
