Fodder is defined as the wide range of crop and pasture species grown that are harvested and lightly processed to facilitate both on-farm use and domestic and export trade.

The fodder industry is worth approximately $700 million per annum to the Australian economy, and of the 7 million tonnes of fodder produced annually, some 1.5.million tonnes are traded on the domestic market. In 1996/77, various types of hay, chaff and pellets worth $57 million were exported to Japan alone.
