Pastures for Profit is a comprehensive management intensive grazing school offered annually throughout Ohio by the Ohio State University Extension Forage Team. The Team consists of members from OSU Extension, the OSU Department of Horticulture and Crop Sciences, and the Natural Resource Conservation Service.

Each of the eight 30 to 45 minute presentations were recorded during an Ohio Pastures for Profit grazing school offered in April of 2012 and may be found linked in mp4 format below. Even on a high speed connection, they may each take 3 to 4 minutes to load, but then will play flawlessly on your desktop, laptop, iPad and many iPhones.
