forage quality

Forage quality usually refers to concentration of available energy (total digestible nutrients, TDN) and concentration of crude protein, combined with the quantity of forage intake. In practice, animal performance of grazing animals reflects forage quality. Originally, forage referred to plants eaten directly by animals, but now it may also include plants harvested and delivered to them.
