Author and animal-behavior expert Temple Grandin — perhaps the best known person with autism in the world — will discuss her career on Saturday at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

Grandin’s presentation, which is open to the public, will run from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. in Gladys Valley Hall.

Grandin, who didn’t speak until she was 3 years old, is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and one of the foremost speakers on the subject of autism. She has designed the facilities in which half of all cattle in the United States are handled, according to a news release.

Grandin is the author of several books including the memoir “Thinking in Pictures,” “Animals In Translation:
Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior” and, most recently, “Different … Not Less,” which chronicles successful adults with autism, Asperger’s syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Her life story was told in a 2010 HBO movie named for her, starring Claire Danes, and in a BBC documentary. In 2010, she was named one of Time Magazine’s “100 most influential people.”

Grandin’s appearance is part of the third annual Beef Improvement and Low Stress Cattle Handling Seminar and fifth annual Food Animal Practitioners Continuing Education Symposium.

The cost to attend is $30 per person for the public and ranchers and $175 for veterinary practitioners. Registration is available online at www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/ce or at the door.

    Unfortunately, the entire event is sold-out - both in person and online. Our facilities and lecture hall will not be able to accommodate anyone at the door for registration. The veterinary community has had a great response to hear her lectures entitled: "SETTING UP AND IMPLEMENTING AUDITING PROGRAMS FOR CATTLE AND OTHER FOOD ANIMALS" and "CATTLE BEHAVIOR AND IMPROVING HANDLING FACILITIES".
