Humane Handling Livestock System
At Waseda Farms


Waseda Farms Temple Grandin Cattle System for Humane Handling of Beef Cattle
Just like people, animals have stress. At Waseda Farms®, we work hard to make sure our animals live their lives stress free. Why? Because we believe endorphins and adrenalin can adversely affect animals and ultimately their flavor. 
“We do everything we can to reduce the stress of the animals. That’s why we chose the Temple Grandin Handling System, designed by the world’s leading animal handling researcher, Dr. Temple Grandin.” - Tom Lutsey, Founder

Temple Grandin Facility

In 2008, Waseda Farms learned about Colorado State University professor of animal science Dr. Temple Grandin. She studied animal behavior and understood that under stress cattle go in circles to calm down. Through extensive research and development, she created a unique system known as the Temple Grandin Handling System.

Waseda Farms invited Dr. Grandin and Mark Deesing to design one of their cattle handling systems, the first in the state of Wisconsin and the smallest they had ever designed. This revolutionary system allows for just one person to manage the entire herd—all while keeping the animals stress free.

Dr. Temple Grandin
Temple Grandin, professor of animal science, Colorado State University, is a world leader in animal handling systems and prolific researcher and author. One of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, Dr. Grandin’s early life and career with the livestock industry is captured in HBO’s 7 time-Emmy winning movie, Temple Grandin: Autism Gave Her a Vision. She Gave It a Voice. To learn more, visit her website at www.grandin.com.
Mark J. Deesing
Mark J. Deesing, custom design consultant for Grandin Livestock Handling Systems, Inc., has designed hundreds of handling facilities for all types of livestock, as well as wildlife and zoo species. He and Dr. Grandin have co-authored two books together; “Genetics and the Behavior of Domestic Animals” (Academic Press, 1998), and “Humane Livestock Handling” (Storey Publishing, 2008), along with several referred journal articles on cattle behavior.
