Vegetable Waste as Wafer Feed for Increasing Productivity of Sheep

Y. Retnani, A. Saenab and Taryati

Vegetable waste is part from vegetables or vegetables that are not used or discarded in the market. The weakness of this vegetable waste is easy to decay, voluminous (bulky) and the availability was fluctuated, so the processing technology is needed to make this vegetable waste to be durable, easy to stored and easy to given to the animal. To solve this problem is making vegetable waste into wafer feed. The aim of this experiment was to determine the productivity of sheeps that were given by vegetable waste as wafer feed. Experimental design used randomized block design with 5 treatments and 3 replications. The treatments were wafer feed composition i.e R1 (100% of conventional feed), R2 (75% of conventional feed+25% of wafer feed), R3 (50% of conventional feed+50% of wafer feed), R4 (25% of conventional feed+75% of wafer feed), R5 (100% of wafer feed). Conventional feed were field grass and rice bran. The results of this research indicated that the treatments had not significant effect (p>0.05) on productivity of sheep. Sheep were fed by conventional fed had final body weight 27.07 kg, meanwhile sheep were fed 100% of wafer feed complete had 34 kg or 25.6% higher than conventional.
