Temple Grandin, world-renowned expert on both animal science and autism, speaks as part of the “Animals in Our Lives” program, a fundraising event for CFAES’ Center for Human-Animal Interactions Research and Education (or CHAIRE), on Sept. 30 in Dublin, Ohio.
A talk set for next week’s Farm Science Review will feature alternative forage plants that tolerate flooding and drought.
Why it’s important: Ohio’s hay supply for livestock is currently extremely low due to spring’s excessive rainfall. Growing flooding-tolerant forages to feed livestock could limit the risk from such rain in the future. (Photo: Tall fescue, James H. Miller, USDA Forest Service, Bugwood.org.)
If you’re interested in humane, efficient livestock care based on the best available science (and some amazing insight), are thinking about majoring in livestock science or livestock management at ATI, which is the two-year associate degree-granting program within our college, and/or know who Temple Grandin is, then this is very cool.
There’s an HBO movie about Grandin (played by Claire Danes). Watch the trailer (video, 1:52).
