Dr. Grandin is a designer of livestock handling facilities and a Professor of Animal Science at
Colorado State University. She has designed facilities located in the United States, Canada, Europe,
Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. In North America, almost half of the cattle are
handled in a center track restrainer system that she designed for meat plants. Curved chute and race
systems she designed for cattle are used worldwide and her writings on the flight zone and other
principles of grazing animal behavior have helped many people to reduce stress on their animals during
handling. Other areas of research are: cattle temperament, environmental enrichment for pigs, reducing
dark cutters and bruises, bull fertility, training procedures, and effective stunning methods for cattle
and pigs at meat plants.
