This study was to determine the effect of agricultural waste-based feeding on performing production and nutrient digestibility of beef cattle in the form of four types divided into four treatments namely, P-1, P-2, P-3 and P-4. The material used is bulls amounted to 28 head initial body weight of cattle ranging from 350-400 kg with Simental and Limousine breeds; cow faces samples were 28 samples from four feed treatments and seven replications. Variables observed were performing production including feed consumption, daily body weight gain, feed conversion, feed efficiency, feed cost per profit and income over feed cost and feed nutrient digestibility. The results of the study of feed from agricultural waste have a significant effect (p<0.05) on the consumption (10.20±0.43 kg/head/day). Dry matter digestibility (75.48±1.46%) and organic matter digestibility (69.14±1.21%). No significantly effect (p>0.05) on daily body weight increase, feed conversion ratio, feed efficiency, feed cost per gain, income over feed cost of beef cattle. P-1 is the best treatment to feed consumption, dry matter dan organic matter digestibility of beef cattle.
