      Abstract

      Integration of cattle and palm fruit (SISKA) has known as programme to improve cattle production and population in indonesia. Palm fruit plantation not only provide area for cattle to wander but also provide feeds as forage and stem-midrib of palm. However, this system seem fails to meet their objections. There are very few palm fruit plantation in indonesia applied this system voluntarily. Main reason for that were technical and management problems. This study will explore problems and answer related to application of integration of cattle and palm fruit plantation, and also applied the systems in fattening calf program using palm fruit by products. Twenty steers with average of body weight 153 + 5,3kg were grouped into two groups. Each group consists of 10 BX steers. Control group were given forages while treatment group has feed ration consists of stem-midrib of palm, CPO sludge and salt. Each rations were formulated to have same dry matter percentage. They were treated 2 month. Observed parameters were dry matter consumption, dry matter digestibility, average daily gain and body condition score. The result shows that there were no significant result on dry matter digestibility, dry matter consumption (P>0,05).However, treatment group has better average daily gain and body condition score.
