Here is number 8

In the spring the Farm received a very special visitor, Dr. Temple Grandin. In the agricultural circle Grandin is well known for her work with better understanding animal psychology and improved handling methods. Outside of ag she is a leading speaker on the subject of autism. The recent Claire Danes bio-picture about Grandin won numerous awards. Thanks to a cold call and some coaxing from Julie Tracy, Grandin agreed to come tour the Farm and make a special presentation on livestock care to the Glenview Clovers 4-H club.
