Abstract | The influence of administration of FOPFE (Fermented Oil Palm Fronds Extract) on digestibility and goat performance of Kacang goat is the aims of this study. The fermentation process of oil palm fronds is carried out by adding 10% poultry manure for 21 days with, then extracted with methanol solvent. Twelve male goats>1 year were used in this research, were placed in a metabolic caged which were equipped with feedbox and drink. Randomized block design, 4 treatments with 3 groups was used in this research namely : P0 = complete ration + 0% FOPFE; P1 = complete ration + 0.1% FOPFE; P2 = complete ration + 0.2% FOPFE and P3 = complete ration + 0.3% FOPFE. The measured parameters were digestibility of nutrient (organic matter, dry matter, crude fiber, crude protein, extract eter, ADF, NDF, hemicellulose and cellulose) and goat performance of kacang goats (body weight gain, intake of dry matter, body weight gain, conversion of feed and efficiency of ration). The results showed that FOPFE to 0.3% has no significant effect (P>0.05) on average daily gain, nutrient digestibility, feed conversion and feed efficiency but significantly effect (P<0.05) on goat performance. The administration of 0.3% of FOPFE can maintain nutrient digestibility and goat performance.
