Abstract | Fermentation palm oil waste that can break down fiber content, supplementation of cassava leaves silage and addition of organic micro minerals are also efforts to increase the nutritional content that it can meet the needs of animal feed. The effect of fermented palm oil fronds, supplementation of cassava leaves and organic micro minerals on growth and digestibility nutrients of goat. This study used 12 Ettawa Grade goats, used a Randomized Block Design (RBD) method which was and based on body weight. Feed materials used in this study were fermented palm oil waste (palm fronds and fronds), cassava leaves silage, and organic micro minerals. The treatments consisted of R1: control ration; R2: ration waste based on fermented palm oil; R3: R2 + cassava leaves silage; and R4: R3 + organic micro minerals. Supplementation of cassava leaves silage and organic micro minerals in palm oil waste based rations significantly affected (P<0.1) on body weight gain and feed efficiency. Supplementation of cassava leaves silage and organic micro minerals in palm oil waste based rations did not significantly affect (P>0.1) on crude fiber digestibility, digestibility of crude protein, crude fat digestibility, and TDN in goats. Supplementation of cassava leaves silage and organic micro minerals in palm oil waste based rations with different treatment on goats had improved on body weight gain and feed efficiency but not affect on digestibility of crude fiber, crude protein, crude fat, and TDN in goats.
