Temple Grandin to speak in Sheridan in support of new nonprofit

SHERIDAN (WNE) — Temple Grandin, a prominent figure in both the agriculture and autism communities, is coming to Sheridan in July to help raise funds for a new local nonprofit.

Grandin is an advocate for the humane treatment of livestock. According to her website, around half the cattle in the U.S. are handled in facilities she designed specifically to reduce stress on animals before slaughter.

A professor of animal science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, she is also a spokesperson for people with autism.
