Dr. Temple Grandin is the author, with Catherine Johnson, of Animals Make Us Human: Creating The Best Life for Animals. A Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and designer of livestock handling facilities, Dr. Grandin is autistic and she describes herself as a visual thinker.  Much of her work is devoted to promoting humane methods of handling livestock through teaching and through improving slaughterhouses.  For example, her designs for curved cattle corrals reduce stress on cattle as they are herded to slaughter.  Dr. Grandin believes that stress levels in animals have a direct impact on meat quality
