Animal Well Being Legend Temple Grandlin Headlines Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare

Thu, 20 May 2010 5:04:46 CDT

Animal Well Being Legend Temple Grandlin Headlines Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare There are a few people that seem larger than life in US Agriculture during the thirty five years I have been covering farming and ranching in the US. Three names that come to mind quickly in that regard are Dr. Earl Butz, Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh and Dr. Temple Grandlin. Dr. Grandlin was the leadoff speaker for the Suymposium for Beef Cattle Welfare being held on the campus of Kansas State University this week- and she spoke of the need to keep pushing the standards of animal care and well being higher and higher to stay ahead of those that are critical of today's livestock producers- as well as others that handle Beef Cattle in the pipeline from the ranch to the folk.

Dr. Grandlin spoke of her experience with the general public and the general media as she has gone around the country helping promote the HBO produced movie of her life. She tells us that most people away from the farm or ranch have no idea of how animals are handled or treated- but they are hungry for knowledge. She adds that we have not done a good job of providing that knowledge and need to be proactive in getting more information out about the care given to livestock by almost everyone in the industry.
