Humane Slaughter

Location: Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO

Featuring: Dr. Temple Grandin

We need to make sure to give animals a good life and a calm death that is free from pain.

Nearly half the cattle in America are processed in meat plants using Temple Grandin’s Center Track Restrainer System. Temple Grandin’s Autism allows her to “see and think” like animals. Temple says the five main causes of animal welfare problems are stressful pre-slaughter handling, distractions that impede movement, lack of employee training, poor equipment maintenance, and poor conditions of animals arriving at the plant. Healthy animals who are properly handled from life through death. That’s the goal.
