    Abstract

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of palm fruit by-products as feed supplement to increase weaned calves performance. Solid ex-decanter were combined with multi mineral and utilized as feed supplement fo form a lick block. Ten weaned calves 6 months old (122.34 ± 20.25 kg) were randomly categorized into 2 groups. Control weaned calves receive no Solid Ex-Decanter Multi-Nutrient Block (SEDMB) supplementation and treated calf were given continuously. The experiment was conducted at rural farmin areas in Darmasraya and calves feed total mix ratio formulated with palm fruuit by product based. Measured parameter were daily weight gain (DWG), body condition score (BCS) feed consumption, feed conversion, in vivo dry matter and organic matter digestibility. The treatment were significanly different (p<0.05) on daily weight gain, body condition score and feed conversion but did not significanly different (p>0.05) on feed consumption, dry matter and organic matter digestibility. SEDMB supplementation on weaned calves performance of Simbrah Breed showed the effectiveness of feed consumption. Keywords: Solid ex-decanter, calves, supplement, palm fruit by-products.
