Abstract

An experiment in a completely randomize design was undertaken to study the use of fresh-watergreen algae as a yolk coloring agent in Mojosari ducks during a laying period on productiveperformance and egg quality from 36 to 44 wk of age. A total of 80 thirty-six wk?old laying ducks weredivided into four dietary treatments and each of four replicates with 5 birds. Diets were formulated witha commercial concentrate, rice bran and yellow corn (2:4:4) according to a commercial standard diet asa control, and three other dietary treatments with 2, 4 or 8% of green algae were included. Fresh watergreen algae had a significant effect on the feed uptake, egg production, and feed conversion ratio (FCR)(p<0.05). Egg production and FCR improved at added 2 and 4% green algae. No differences wereobserved in egg yolk index, albumen index, Haugh Unit, and egg shell thickness (P>0.05) except eggyolk color. The yolk color increased within 7 days after feeding with the test diets. The present studyindicated that fresh-water green algae could be used as a natural coloring agent in laying ducks and at8% of green algae showed the highest score of (Roche Yellow Color-15).

Abstract

This study aimed to identify the characteristics and selling price of livestock as well as characteristics of buffaloes which determine the selling price in Sumbang Village, Curio Sub district, Enrekang District. The type of study was descriptive using the snowball method in determining the number of samples.Descriptive analysis was used to identify the characteristics of buffaloes in relation to their selling price. The results of study indicated  that the characteristics of buffaloes were determined according to the horns, feathers whirl position, skin color, feather color and physical conditions. These characteristics would dictate the selling price of the buffaloes, whichranged between IDR.12,000,000.- and IDR. 53,000,000.-.

Abstract

The aim of this research was to study the influence of cattle breeder caracteristics which consisted of age, education, and breeding experience on their involvement in the farmer group in the rural area. This research was conducted in Bone Regency, South Sulawesi. Population in this research was all of beef cattle breeders in that regency whether they already involved in the group or not. The total number of the sample was 88 farmers. The experiment used descriptive statistics to analyze characteristics of the breeders and multiple regression analysis to examine the influence of breeders? caractersitics on their involvement in the farmer group. The results of this study indicated that age and education influenced their involvement on farming group in the rural area and positively correlated, while experience in breeding did not have a significant effect (P>0.05). This implies that the older the breeder and the higher education they have, the higher their awareness to be involved in the farmer group.

Abstract

This study aimed to determine the channel marketing types, margin and profit of beef cattle marketing agency from Bone Regency to Makassar. The population of the study covered all beef cattle marketing agencies of Bone Regency to Makassar. Determination of the samples was done by snowball sampling method. Data were collected through direct observation and interviews. Data were then analyzed descriptively. The results showed that there were two forms of beef cattle marketing channel from Bone District to Makassar, the first channel: farmers to traders and then to the inter-area merchant and next to the slaughterhouse businessman, the second channel: farmers to inter-regional traders and next businessmen to the slaughterhouse. The marketing agency that received the largest margin was the cattle traders on the second channel, followed by the inter area cattle traders in the first channel, and the lowest was for the collector. However, the marketing agency that got the most benefit was the collector traders, followed by the inter area traders of the second channel, and the lowest was for inter area traders of the channel I. The longer the beef cattle marketing channel, the greater the margin and profits. The margin and Profit of marketing channel I (two levels) were much greater than those of marketing channel II (one level).

Abstract

The present study was conducted to evaluate the optimum level of dietary inclusion and the form of feeding sapu-sapu fish (SSF) as a single protein source for feed components of small holder Mojosari duck farming. A total of 180 twenty four wk-old laying ducks were fed with two forms (sun-dried and ground-fresh) and three levels of SSF (10, 20 and 30%) from 24 to 32 wk of age. Experimental diets were formulated containing 105.1; 141.5 and 177.9 g/kg crude protein and 3078; 3065 and 3052 kcal metabolizable energy (ME) /kg diet. Production performance and egg quality were measured. The form of SSF had a significant effect (P<0.0001) on feed intake, egg production, feed conversion, egg mass and egg number except final body weight. No significant effects (P>0.05) were found on all of the performance parameters measured due to feeding levels of SSF except feed intake and final body weight. The interaction of form and feeding level was significant (P<0.05) on egg and body weights. Low performance and egg quality were observed in the birds fed a diet containing the dried SSF. It can be suggested that local ducks required 20% SSF as a single protein source for maximum egg production (41.2%) and total egg number per wk (3.1 eggs/bird/wk) during 8 wk of rearing period. Egg quality can be improved by feeding the fresh SSF. However, due to be sufficiently better processing technique, the dried SSF would be potential to replace the common fish for laying ducks.
