Abstract


Since beef demand increases from year to year, it is necessary to meet the demand by an effort to increase the domestic cattle population and productivity. Supplementary feeding as well as probiotics treatment in the form of Bio-Cas can be done in order to improve the growth of cattle. The study was conducted in the village of Bunutan, Abang District, Karangasem Regency for six months from April to October 2015. The study used 18 male of Bali cattles with an average initial weight of 220 kg/head. Cattle were divided into three treatment groups, P.1: Cattle were fed based on usual management by the farmers P.2: As (P.1) plus the provision of Bio-Cas as much as 5 cc/head/day. P.3: As (P.2) plus rice bran 2 kg/head/day. The results showed that cattle which were fed by an appropriate way for farmers (P1) increased in body weigh of 180 g/head/day, giving Bio-Cas as much as 5 cc/head/day (P.2) increased body weight of 350 g/head/day mean while giving Bio-Cas as much as 5 cc/head/day plus bran 2 kg/head/day (P.3) weight gained 510 g/head/day. Statistically, the three treatments showed significant difference (P<0.05). Giving rice bran as much as 2 kg/head/day plus Bio-Cas 5 cc/head/day, resulted in the highest R/C, so this treatment gave the highest benefit to the farmers.
