Fascinating is an understatement; Dr. Temple Grandin is beyond belief… I met her in person for the first time last week and found her to have the uncanny ability to cut to the heart of an issue and separate the cause from the effect. She is well informed and prepared to offer viable alternatives to solve a given problem. We spent most of a day together and our conversation ran the gamut from animal welfare to animal rights, and from anti-farming activists to farming as the key to our nation’s sovereignty. When I asked what we in ag can do about attacks from the anti-farming crowd, Temple suggested we become more transparent—she said we should open the doors and let consumers see what we do.
