About half of the slaughterhouses in America are based on her designs.
Just watched a movie about her life.

    I could have stopped the movie when she, at about 18, designed and built an automatic opening and closing gate with no motor and that would have been plenty uplifting for me.

    We have the freedom to end our respective years as we choose.

    I do hope yours is uplifting.

    I got to hear her speak in person last year at a college. They normally had guest speakers at a hall that seats 500, she spoke at the gym that seats 3,000 and about filled it. She is a remarkable lady.

    The fact that she has found her niche and overcome her disabilities is uplifting. There are groups of cattlemen who have placed her in a position of"do no wrong".
    Not to take anything away from her accomplishments but, many of her cattle handling ideas and plans are no better than those developed or built by others who don't have the publicity she does.
