What is fodder crops?
Fodder is food used to raise livestock. More than half of all agricultural land is used to produce fodder. Fodder is an agricultural term for animal feed, and fooder crops are those plants that are raised to feed livestock.
Common grain crops that are grown for fodder include corn, oats, millet, barley, sorghum, wheat and soybeans. Some of these crops, such as corn and wheat, are obviously also grown for human comsumption.
Forage is fodder crop that is grown (or encouraged, such as grass) for grazing animals. Immature grain crops, grasses and legumes, including alfalfa, are common forage.
Silage is fermented grass and other crops that are fed to ruminants, such as cattle and sheep. Silage grasses (hay and straw, for example) are cut and stored for future consumption, such as winter feed.
Even if the grass is not cultivated, the grasslands, or pasture is known as a fodder crop. Pasture is land set aside for free-range grazing animals, such as cattle and sheep.
What is fodder chopper?
The chopper is mainly used for stalk forage, such as rice straw, wheat straw, maize stover and maize for ensiling. Straw choppers can be classified by size into small, medium and large. The small-size chopper is mainly adapted for chopping dry straw or silage on small-scale farms. The large chopper - also called a silage chopper - is mainly used for silage on cattle farms. The medium chopper is normally suited to cutting dry straw and silage, so it is called a straw-silage chopper.
Choppers can be divided into cylinder or flywheel types, according to the mode of cutting. Large- and medium-size choppers are generally flywheel types, to facilitate throwing silage, but the majority of small choppers are cylinder type. Large and medium choppers are usually equipped with road wheels for easy movement, while small-size choppers are normally stationary.
