Y. Retnani, S. Suharti, Taryati, Herni and D. Argadyasto    

Abstract: Livestock productivity required a variety of factors, one of which is the quality of feed. Limitation of livestock productivity in several area in Indonesia are low quality of feed, restricted of forage, especially, in dry seasson. A feed processing technology that might be addopted by to farmers the feed of wafers. Feed wafer processing technology is easy and cheap and can be used to treat these wastes into durable feed, easily to stored and easily given to livestock. Supplementation level in 5, 10 and 15% of wafer and without supplementation was observed in this research. The average daily weight gain by giving 10% of wafer feed supplement to pasundan calves is 58% most highest than other treatment. Final body weight of local calves by giving 10% of wafer supplement most higest than other treatment, the final body weight by giving 10% of wafer supplement around 14% higher than giving conventional feed only. Giving wafer feed supplements did not affect the physiological condition of the cattle based on haematology of blood.
