Animal behavior specialist struggle with criticism regarding anthromorphism. I suspect that it is just normal animal behavior that has involved into the animal known as human that is being described rather than an anthromphism.
When humans decide to raise animals for their benefits, then it became important to provide their basic needs from birth to death and is good business.
Dr. Temple Grandin provides a wonderful guide regarding animal behavior and problem solving.
Her insights regarding the suppression of patents and the problems with managing the behavior of people when they interface with a complex system was on target.
Cattle have to navigate handling systems designed by Dr Grandin, but they are the simpler part of the problem. The more difficult variable is positively influencing the human behavior that interfaces her handling systems.
Animals Make Us Human is also a great business guide.
I went on to read about animal welfare at large farms and although some of the things she described were horrible to read about, it was a real eye opener. Animals who are raised for slaughter can still have a safe and fear free life and Temple Grandin knows exactly how to do it. If only all corporate and independent farms would listen to her.
I also loved her very matter of fact narration.
Warning: she does describe animal cruelty and it can be upsetting.
