Abstract

Forage is the main component of feed given to ruminants. Local feed ingredients that can be used are mangroves and native grass.  This study used the Randomized Block Design (RBD) experimental method with 4 = four treatments and 5-five replications. The treatments composed of Hay Mangrove Leaves and Native grass as follows: A (60 + 40%), B (50 + 50%), C (40 + 60%) and D (30 + 70%). Data were analyzed using General Liner Model and continued with Duncan's Multiple Range Tests (DMRT). The results showed that the treatment had a highly significant effect (P<0.01) on the digestibility of crude fiber, crude fat, and NFE. The best ratio of the combination of mangrove leaf hay and field grass based on the in-vitro digestibility was C treatment (40% mangrove hay + 60% field grass). The digestibility value of each crude fiber was 61.24%, crude fat was 61.43% and NFE was 62.30%. This study aims to evaluate the in-vitro digestibility of crude fiber, crude fat, and Nitrogen-Free Extract (NFE) of hay mangrove leave and native grass.
