EFFECT OF COMPLETE FEED CONTAINING VARIETIES OF STONE BANANA STEM ON KACANG GOAT PRODUCTIVITY
AbstractThe objective of this research was to observe the effect of complete feed containing banana stem on kacang goat productivity. Twelve male kacang goats were used with average initial body weight 14.42 ± 1.98 kg and ages between 10-15 months. Complete feed made in the form of pellets with a diameter of 7 mm and length 3 cm. Construction of enclosure measuring 12m x 6m and the construction of the stage as high as 140 cm-story and plot pens measuring 1 x 1 m with a height of 130 cm. Rumen fluid pH, blood glucose, acetic acid,ammonia (NH3), volatile fatty acid (VFA), body weight, complete feed intake, dry matter intake, digestibility of dry matter, energy consumption, energy digestibility, feed conversion complete, carcasses and carcass parts are measured. Data were analyzed by t-test. Results showed that the rumen fluid pH, NH3, CF3 between treatments were not significantly different CF0 (P < 0.05), whereas propionic acid, butyrate, blood glucose and total VFA differ high significantly (P< 0.01). CF3 treatment produces propionic acid, Butyrate, blood glucose and total VFA better than the control. Complete feed containing wheat banana stem stone kacang goat productivity is better than complete feed control.
