The "Pastures for Profit" grazing school is a comprehensive course in Management Intensive Grazing

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.

The following 30 to 45 minute presentations were recorded live in mp4 format during a Pastures for Profit grazing school offered in April of 2012. Even on a high speed connection they may each take 3 to 4 minutes to load, but then should play flawlessly on your desktop, laptop, iPad and most phones.
