What are forage crops. 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.

Natural pasture is a forage but is not grown as a crop, so is termed forage, not a forage by: 6. To produce a precise and accurate ration or diet, forage testing must be done, otherwise producers are just guessing about the nutrient content of the forage.
