  Fodder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In agriculture, fodder or animal feed is any foodstuff that is used specifically to feed livestock, such as cattle, sheep, chickens and pigs.
Fodder may be effectively grown in a hydroponic environment.
For instance, 1 ton of barley can be converted to 7 tons of fodder in less than two weeks.

 Fodder crops neglected -DAWN - Business; July 7, 2003
Research organizations are either yet to come up with a fodder crop that makes the breeders life easier or their researches have not been tested in the field for the benefit of farmers.
But small breeders forming the bulk of milk and meat animal’s owners either do not own land or their land holdings are too small to raise fodder crops in addition to cash crops; their cropping practice is confined to cultivation that gives them subsistence level living income and grains for a year’s time.
Fodder is hardly the top priority of farmers even though livestock is their lifeline in majority cases.

Fodder legumes such as alfalfa or lucerne (Medicago sativa), berseem (Trifolium alexandrinum), shaftal (Trifolium resupinatum), vetch (Vicia sativa), cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata) etc. can be grown in association with fruit trees, providing fodder for livestock as well as improving soil fertility through biological nitrogen fixation.
High quality leguminous fodders are grown on small areas – shaftal (Trifolium resupinatum) for green feed during spring and lucerne (Medicago sativa) for hay as winter feed (Figure 3); the lucerne varieties used, probably of Xinjiang origin, are strongly winter-dormant, excessively so for the lower altitudes, and provide few cuts.
Fodder oat cultivation has advanced greatly in Pakistan and especially in the Northern Areas in recent years due to extensive on-farm demonstration of forage yield potential of forage oats.

 Fodder availability through silage -DAWN - Business; September 19, 2005
The area under fodder cultivation is decreasing because of the ever-increasing demand of cereal grains for humans and usually small land holders prefer to grow cash crops instead of the fodders.
The fodder should be chopped and trench silos may be filled with this chopped fodder and must be pressed properly to remove air to have good an-aerobiasis.
Packing of fodder is imperative to help exclude air from the silo because fodder tissue respiration results in the loss of nutrients which would otherwise be available for the anaerobic bacteria to use for lactic acid production.

 Income effects of fodder and herd management on small-scale milk producers in the northern Peruvian Andes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Where access to irrigation water is limited, annual fodder crops (mainly field beans and oats) and crop residues gain importance as a means to partially overcome fodder scarcity in the dry season (Malpartida et al 1994).
As all fodder management levels or scenarios were confronted in the model with all herd management levels, the analysis results refer to 25 management combinations (5 x 5).
Since fodder conservation practice is treated as an independent scenario, 50 model runs were executed in total, analyzing the impact of the 25 combinations of all fodder and herd management scenarios twice, with and without fodder conservation practices.

 .: Farm Forest Line - Fodder:.
Because the cost of establishing and managing tree fodder systems is commonly much higher than for pastures or annual fodder crops, trees are only likely to be an option as an alternative or supplement for hay crops or purchased feed.
Some examples of important tree fodder are the pods or fruits of many trees such as Honey Locust and Carob which usually ripen and fall in late summer or autumn.
Tree fodder quality might only be of concern during times of severe feed shortages, such as periods of extended drought, where it may be insufficient to maintain live weight and stock health.

The concept of producing fodder hydroponically is not new.In his visionary book, The ABC of NFT, Dr Allen Cooper introduces the concept of hydroponic fodder production in areas of the world where adverse conditions of climate and/or soil make it difficult to produce milk or even meat.
The Livestock Fodder Shed and systems like it, presents a practical, cost-effective solution to the most critical consequences of drought – the incapacity to sustain livestock, or even keep animals alive.On an industrial scale, green feed units such as the Livestock Fodder Shed offer a realistic alternative to stock reductions including culling, and/or premature sale.
For example, hydroponic fodder has been found to increase milk yields in dairy cows appreciably, as well as improving the vigour and performance of racehorses and brood mares.
