Food on Offer, or FOO, is the amount of pasture available for sheep to eat. It is measured as dry matter per hectare, and then used to budget feed available and stocking rates for a given period.
FOO includes all green material above the ground and it is reported in kilograms of dry matter per hectare (kg DM/ha).
