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 http://www.isbcw.beefcattleinstitute.org/.
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,
