MetadataShow full item record
Nematodiasis is one of the obstacles in achievement optimum milk productivity. Date fruit waste (DFW) is waste from the production of date fruit juice, can be used as animal feed as an energy source, and contain flavonoid. Kemuning leaves (A,1urraya paniculata fL.) Jack) is a herb contain active compound as anthelmintic agent. The aim of this research was to study the influence ofDFW without or with 1% kemuning leaves meal as anthelmintic agent to suppress gastrointestinal parasites (worm) infestation in PE goat. The research consists of the RO (control with oxfendazole oral (dose 5 mg Kgl BB-l), R1 (ration with 10% date fruit waste (DFW)), R2 (R1with1% kemuning leaves meal). Nine lactating Etawah crossbreed goats of 56. 7±JO.2 Kg body weight, number of calVing of 1-4 times and average milk production 857±173 mL dayI, randomly grouped into 3 groups and each treatment 3 replicates. Data analyzed with analysis of variance (ANOVA). The parameters were feed intake, digestibility, average daily gain (ADG) and eggs per gram (EPG) o.ffeces as indicator gastrointestinal parasites infestatiOn. The result showed that the treatments 'were not influence all parameters but there was evidence that after less 6 week~ (38d and 37d) consumed the ration containing 10% without or with 1% kemuning leaves meal showed decreasing EPG similar than control. As cone/us ion, the ration containing 10% and with addition 1% kemuning leaves meal could be used as anthelmintic agent to solve gastrointestinal parasites infestation in PE goats.
