"Temple Grandin is the world's foremost authority on livestock handling systems and is well known for being an avid communicator on the critical importance of attention to animal stewardship and care throughout the entire animal agriculture supply chain," says Ronnie Green, University of Nebraska vice president and Harlan vice chancellor, Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at UNL. "It is a tremendous opportunity to have her with us as a Heuermann Lecturer to discuss and reflect on America's high standards and dedication to animal stewardship by our farmers and ranchers in the production of the highest quality and safest products in the world."
Among Grandin's many awards are the Meritorious Achievement Award from the Livestock Conservation Institute and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. In 2010 she was named to Time magazine's list of "The 100 Most Influential People in the World."
In 2011 she was inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame, and in 2012 into the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame.
A movie about her early life and career with the livestock industry received seven Emmy awards, a Golden Globe and a Peabody Award.
Grandin is a past member of the board of directors of the Autism Society of America and lectures throughout the U.S. on her experience with autism.
Heuermann Lectures stream live, and are archived at this website site shortly after the lecture. They are broadcast on NET2 World at a date following the lecture.
