Abstract

Forages that blanket over half the earth's land surface are America's most important crop commodity. Forages currently supply over half the feed units of all livestock in the U. S. Super forage varieties, capable of replacing some grain fed to livestock, can and must be bred to keep meat and milk prices low.
