ABSTRACT Beef cattle fattening is raised by farmers in Central Java, but not yet profit oriented. The aims ofthis research were to analyze the farmer income of beef cattle fattening farm and its contribution to thetotal household income and to analyze the influence of production costs and farm size toward beef cattlefarm income. Survey was used among 150 beef cattle farmers, while multi stage cluster quota samplingwas used as sampling method. Income analysis, paired t test, and multiple linear regression were usedfor data analysis. Research result showed that the farmer’s income from beef cattle farm is IDR6,736,824.21 per 6.32 month fattening period on an average farm scale was 2.31 heads (equal to IDR1,065,953.20/month). While, average incomeoffarmhouseholds fromnon-beef cattle farm was IDR3,516,080.95/month. The contribution of beef cattle farm to household farmer’s income was 30.32%.Based on the paired t test, beef cattle farm income is significantly different and smaller than the incomefrom non-beef cattle farm. Multiple linear regression analysis showed that variable cost and number ofbeef cattle had a significant effect on beef cattle farm income, while the fixed cost had no significanteffect. Keywords: beef cattle farm, contribution, farmer’s income
