The pattern of Bali cattle farming in Indonesia is dominated by traditional livestock systems which are identical to local feeding (without taking into account the needs of cattle. This study aims to determine the effect of conventional feeding on the productivity of Bali cattle in Lempake Village, North Samarinda Sub-district, Samarinda City. The study targeted male Bali cattle and measured chest circumference for body weight gain (BWG), Average Daily Gain (ADG), and feed weighing to obtain Dry Matter Intake (DMI) and feed efficiency. The data were analyzed using a multiple linear analysis with the help of a computer program SPSS to assess the correlation between productivity and the independent variables, namely X1 = DMI; X2 = BWG; X3 = ADG; and X4 = feed efficiency. The results showed that the samples had an average DMI, BWG, ADG, and feed efficiency of 16.54, 0.43, 0.43 kg/head/day, and 2.58%, respectively. The regression equation obtained was Y = -1,974+0,005X1-0,0559X2+ 11,685X3+ 1,1287X4 and the coefficient of determination revealed that all the variables had a 90.6% effect on Bali cattle productivity. Bali cattle had a productivity value of 1.85, which shows that the fattening business was profitable or economically feasible.
