Dr. George Johnson, Professor of Animal Science at Ohio State University, discusses such topics as the growth of the mega farm since World War II, the increase in the numbers and percentages of women students in agriculture since the early 1960s, and a general increased interest in exotic animals, such as the beefalo, a cross between beef cattle and buffalo. Johnson also explains how the university's agricultural enterprises were divided between the two campuses: the main campus in Columbus, and the Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in Wooster
