Abstract

The process of transportation of animals from one to another area can lead to stress. Animals tend to reduce feed intake which then affects animal performance, so palatable feed is needed, with high energy content, and can speed up the body weight recovery process. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of logistic feed (mash, silage, pellet, and wafer) compared with conventional feed on physiological parameters, blood metabolite profiles, and body weight recovery of tropical sheep pasca transportation. This study used Randomized Block Design (RBD) consisting of 5 treatments and 6 replications using 30 male local sheep: P 0 = conventional feed (100% forage), P 1: Mash, P 2: Silage, P 3: Pellet, P 4: Wafer. The logistic feed has a significant effect on dry matter, crude protein and ether extract intake, blood glucose level, leukocytes lymphocyte, Neutrophil and Lymphocyte (N/L) ratio, and basophil level in sheep blood, total body weight gain, feed efficiency, and income over feed cost (P<0.05). A logistic feed can accelerate the increase in the body weight recovery process of sheep pasca transportation. Moreover, the provision of logistic feed in the form of silage resulted in the highest feed efficiency and income over feed costs.
