Historically, the term forage has meant only plants eaten by the animals
directly as pasture, crop residue, or immature cereal crops, but it is
also used more loosely to include similar plants cut for fodder and
carried to the animals, especially as hay or silage. The term forage fish

crop is used to define crops, annual or biennial, which are grown to be
utilized by grazing or harvesting as a whole crop.
