Nearly 450 people came to the college on Nov. 11 to hear Dr. Temple Grandin discuss “How animals think and feel” at the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center Auditorium. Grandin was named to the TIME 100 list of the most 100 influential people in the world in 2010, in part for her contributions to the livestock industry regarding animal welfare.
Dr. Grandin is a professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and an internationally known author and speaker on autism. Following her talk, at approximately 7 p.m., she was available to sign copies of several of her books, which were available for sale. Titles included:
- Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals
- Thinking in Pictures

- The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism & Asperger's
- Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior
- Humane Livestock Handling: Understanding Livestock Behavior and Building Facilities for Healthier Animals, and

The talk was a fundraiser for the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
