Why would a cow lick a tractor? Why are collies getting dumber? Why do dolphins sometimes kill for fun? How can a parrot learn to spell? How did wolves teach man to evolve? Author Temple Grandin draws upon a long, distinguished career as an animal scientist and her own experiences with autism to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals act, think and feel.
Revered animal scientist, activist and author Temple Grandin presents her much anticipated presentation “Improving Animal Welfare: A Practical Approach” from her new book, Humane Livestock Handling.

Animals store their memories in pictures, sound and other sensations, and we must handle animals gently to avoid the formation of fear memories.
