Abstract

Wafer feed was a type of processed feed composed of concentrates and forages and manufactured using specialized machinery. Using palm kernel meal as a base, this study attempts to discover wafer feed and calculate the digestibility value of dry matter and organic matter wafer feed for cattle. A fully randomized design with four treatments and four replications was employed in the study. The four wafer feed formulas (formula 1, formula 2, formula 3, formula 4) were each 20 by 20 cm and had a thickness of 4 cm. The digestibility of dry matter and organic matter are among the observations made. Based on physical quality tests (moisture content 15.66 ± 0.79, density 0.75 ± 0.05, and water absorption capacity (185.76 ± 3.85) the results demonstrated that wafer feed could be identified formula 2 4 cm thick wafers had the finest physical look. Additionally, according to biological testing, there was no discernible difference in the dry matter digestibility of feed formulas 1, 2, 3, and 4 (55.49%, 55.39%, 54.77%, and 55.15%) among them. Additionally, there was no discernible difference in the digestibility of organic matter (60.84%, 60.66%, 57.12%, and 59.77%).
