Word for Today: Fodder

I heard the word "Fodder" mentioned several times in a meeting.  I have never heard this word before.  So, I look fodder up in the dictionary.

noun: coarse food (especially for cattle and horses) composed of entire plants or the leaves and stalks of a cereal crop transitive
verb: inferior or readily available material used to supply a heavy demand

The sentence is "We will fodder out the information and then go through the options available."

This is my contribution and understanding of fodder.
*Old English fōdor; akin to Old High German fuotar food.
