Dr. Temple Grandin on Humane Animal Treatment
Temple Grandin was in Knoxville recently to address a Veterinary Social Work summit sponsored by the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Grandin is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and is well-known among animal welfare advocates for improving the conditions in large cattle slaughter facilities. Now, more than half of all the cattle slaughtered in the U.S. and Canada are processed by equipment that she designed. She spoke with Chrissy Keuper about how slaughter plants can be made more humane.
