Fodder

Additional Links
Feed for domestic animals. The Hebrew suggests a mixed feed, either of several grains (though barley was the common grain for livestock, Judges 19:19; 1 Kings 4:28 ) or a mix of finely cut straw, barley, and beans formed into balls. Silage refers to fodder which has been moistened and allowed to ferment slightly (Isaiah 30:24 NRSV). Fodder was salted to satisfy the animals' need for salt and to give a tastier feed.
