Dr. Temple Grandin will be at MSU tomorrow. She’s noted for her research and writings on animal behavior, especially how to reduce stress on animals going to slaughter. She’s also autistic, and has gained visibility as an advocate who helps forward understanding of people on the autism spectrum. Her life story was portrayed in an HBO movie starring Claire Danes, which won seven Emmy awards and a golden Globe.

Grandin says she plans to talk to MSU's Department of Animal Science about basic principles of animal handling and the importance of good management.
