Fianna Fáil will bring a motion before the Dáil and Seanad tomorrow calling for the Government to step up its efforts to deal with the fodder crisis.
The party are concerned about the impact of the shortage on farmers' mental health and the welfare of animals.
Agriculture Minister Michael Creed has allocated €1.5m for animal feed imports to help alleviate the problem.
Fianna Fáil's Agriculture Spokesperson, Charlie McConalogue, says the Government needs to do more.
He said: "The danger is that the Government doesn't provide the additional financial support farmers require.
"That will actually add to the mental strain many farmers are facing and it will put many farmers in a position where they actually can't find the finances necessary to buy the fodder they need for the next couple of weeks.
