    Harvested forage crops play a prominent role in the conservation ethics that are part of grassland agriculture, a land management system emphasizing cultivated forage crops, pasture, and rangelands for forage and livestock production and soil stability (Barnes, ). Emphasis in grassland agriculture is given to the use of grasses, legumes. The information available in this book on recent advances made in the technologies in respect of forage based economic feeding, roughage processing including high moisture forage conservation, densification, leaf meal preparation and mineral nutrition will equip the research and extension workers in dealing with the forage related issues.

Forage fish, also called prey fish or bait fish, are small pelagic fish which are preyed on by larger predators for food. Predators include other larger fish, seabirds and marine l ocean forage fish feed near the base of the food chain on plankton, often by filter include particularly fishes of the family Clupeidae (herrings, sardines, shad, hilsa, menhaden.

    Forages can be conserved in the form of hay, baleage, and silage. It is important to keep in mind that, at best, conserved forages can rarely match the nutritive value of fresh forage. Some losses of highly digestible nutrients start immediately after cutting and are unavoidable. The goal in forage conservation is to focus on minimizing losses. supplementation, feeding frequency, and availability of water and feed — also affect forage intake. Additionally, for stored forage intake is affected by the type of conservation process (i.e., hay or silage), particle size and nutritive value (e.g., fiber, protein, digestibility) and mold contamination,File Size: KB.

Forage crops are plants which, when grown as a crop, have been found to produce high yields of plant material, which are also high in nutrients suitable for livestock requirements for maintenance and production.

And in many ways, it can be a more healthy alternative to the assembly line foods we find at the grocery store. Not only is wild food much richer in essential vitamins and minerals, but foraging also provides. The conservation of forage and crop residues is a traditional way to reduce seasonal variations in availability.

Haymaking involves reducing the moisture content of cut herbage in the field from an initial 70 - 90% to 15 - 20% - simple in theory, but very dependent on the weather and demanding skill and judgement from the farmer.

This may adversely affect the health, welfare, behaviour and Cited by: region that use the forage (Allen et al., ).

Pest, pathogen, and wildlife populations also difer among regions to give an array of variables that afect adaptation of each forage species and its optimum harvest management for economic return and conservation. Species difer in morphology and forage quality that help deine their management use.

addition, researchers have found that when food densities get too low for efficient feeding (about 45 pounds/acre), that ducks will “give up” on a particular location and move to new areas to feed. This threshold certainly excludes harvested soybean fields from being considered as choice feeding areas for waterfowl.

Forage is the most important component in the diet of dairy cattle because of the dramatic impact it has on dry matter and nutrient consumption. The quality and form of forage are two of the factors that have been shown to influence dry matter consumption and milk production in dairy cattle, says Richard O' Kellems from the Animal Science Department, Brigham Young University.Plants utilized in the feeding of livestock have long been a fundamental link in the food chain.

Native grasses supported grazing animals well before man began to domesticate livestock. Forages have always been an extremely important source of nutrients in livestock rations. Additionally, they provide fiber in the ration which enhances proper digestion in forage .In India, a considerable amount of research and development work has been carried out on different aspects of both forage production and soil conservation.

Grasses and legumes are valued as forage and for their role in soil erosion control. Information on the dual role of grasses and legumes is scattered in literature. A synthetic picture of the varied roles that grasses and Cited by: 2.
