Dr. Temple Grandin is well known to many for her trailblazing work as a spokesperson for people with autism and her lifelong work with animal behavior.

She has been a consultant to the La Cense Ranch, in Dillon, Montana and has advised many ranches on the best livestock handling practices.

Her understanding of the human mind has aided her in her work with animal behavior, and she is one of the most respected experts in both autism and animal behavior in the world.
