The film provides a good overview of Temple Grandin's philosophy on low stress animal handling.  It also covers the basics of operating squeeze chutes safely. The video quality is not ideal: It is too grainy to project on a large screen, but it is acceptable for viewing on a computer monitor.  I plan to have students watch it on their own as part of an assignment for a distance-based college course in agricultural safety. It would be more useful for teaching if it included a transcript for study.
