Abstract

Sixteen thin tail lambs, 3 - 5 months old with the average body weight of 13.3 + 1.46 kg (CV=11%) were randomly assigned 4 kinds of complete feed based on completely randomized design with four treatments and four replications), the feed composed of agricultural by-products, T1= rice straw+ soybean meal, T2=corn straw+soybean by-product, T3=peanut straw + copra meal, and T4=sugar cane top+tofu by-product. After 3 months experimental period , all of the experimental animals were slaughtered to measure the edible portion value of those carcasses. Result of the experiment indicated that no differences were observed between treatments for edible portion of carcass (P>0.05). The average of edible portion production were recorded as much as 6.05 kg or 73.83%. It might be concluded that various agricultural by-products could be utilized as complete feed to improve nutritional status and carcass production. Keywords: thin tail lamb, edible portion, agricultural by-products, complete feed.
