Trivia

The scenes in which cows appear to be drowning or otherwise in danger were shot not with living cattle but instead with detailed model cows called "stuffies" or an animatronic cow.
The movie received its Emmy award on Temple Grandin's birthday.
Claire Danes and Temple Grandin spent a half-day lunching and visiting in Danes' New York City apartment as part of Danes' research.
HBO bought a herd of cows for the cattle scenes in this movie.
The small rocket that Professor Carlock, the science teacher, launches to celebrate Temple Grandin's success (with the "perspective" room) is a model of the "Little Joe II", a rocket used to test the Apollo capsule as part of the Moon program. (Very similar to, but not the same as, the "Little Joe" rocket used to test the Mercury capsule; also do not confuse with the "Little Joe 2" rocket flight in the Mercury program.) You can see the model Apollo capsule and Apollo escape tower on the top of the rocket. Given Temple's interest in science, she certainly would be familiar with the tests, which were going on at the time and shown on the evening news.
