Trough Food
Modern livestock trough near Empire Ranch, Arizona.

A manger, is a rack for fodder, or a structure or feeder used to hold food for animals. The word comes from the French manger (meaning "to eat"), from Latin mandere (meaning "to chew").[]


mangers are mostly used in livestock raising[1] and generally found at stables and farmhouses. They are also used to feed wild animals, e.g., in nature reserves.

A similar trough providing drinking water for domestic or non-domestic animals is a watering trough and may be part of a larger watering structure called abreuvoir.

Christian symbol

A manger is also a Christian symbol, associated with nativity scenes where Mary and Joseph, forced by necessity to stay in a room for animals instead of a guest room, used a manger as a makeshift crib for the Baby Jesus.[2] (Greek: phatn?; Luke 2:7).
