Forage is an edible part of the plants that are harvested for feeding livestock. It is an important component of agroecosystems and contributes significantly to world food production. It is rich in vitamins, fibers and proteins and enhances metabolic activities of animals. It helps in milk production, which is achieved by maintaining the rumen health of animals. It improves eggshell formation, fluid balance and hormone production among various poultry farm birds. Besides this, it also prevents soil erosion, aids in keeping sediment out of waterways, reduces weed development, purifies air and water, mitigates greenhouse gas impact and provides wildlife habitat.

Forage Market Trends:
At present, the increasing awareness among individuals about the health benefits of consuming animal products like milk and meat, along with the escalating demand for forage to obtain high-quality products from cattle, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, the reduction of land for grazing animals due to a lack of proper wildlife management is propelling the growth of the market around the world. In addition, with the rising focus on the health of livestock, farmers are increasingly preferring natural and organic forage as it provides adequate nutrition to animals. This, coupled with favorable laws implemented by governments of several countries worldwide, is positively influencing the market. Besides this, the expanding agricultural industry and improvements in fertilizers are offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors.
