ABSTRACT
Forage, animal feed that consists primarily of leaves and stalks of plants. Such plants as grasses and legumes are most commonly used. Forage may be in its natural state where it is used for grazing; it may be harvested and dried and fed to the animals as hay; or it may be in the form of silage. Alfalfa, corn, clover, and sorghum are some of the important forage crops. (The dried stalks and leaves of corn and sorghum are often called fodder.)
