Dr. Grandin will discuss autism, its advantages in working with animals and the different kinds of minds it takes to work well together. Whether you are a member of the autism community or the livestock arena, you will find this talk informative and unforgettable.

“Autism helped me understand animals because I think in pictures. Since animals do not have language, their memories have to be sensory-based instead of word-based.” -Dr. Temple Grandin
