Temple Grandin Highlight

Temple GrandinTemple Grandin is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and internationally recognized leader in animal welfare. Coupling her educational background in psychology (BA, Franklin Pierce College) and animal science (Ph.D., University of Illinois) with her personal interests in animal cognition, Dr. Grandin developed an animal behavior research program that served as the impetus for change in the beef industry. Using immersive learning approaches, she has published numerous high-profile papers defining cattle behavior and adaptations in response to normal and stressful environments. Dr. Lilly Edwards-Callaway, a former Ph.D. student with Dr. Grandin, provides a review of many of the slaughterhouse reforms presently used in today’s beef industry (Edwards-Callaway and Calvo-Lorenzo, 2020). To celebrate Dr. Grandin’s accomplishments, the Journal of Animal Science is offering unlimited access to her publications.
