The aim of this research were to determine the digestibility value of nitrogen-
free extract of silage, formulated concentrate and urea molasses mineral block fed by
beef cattle. Experimental animals used in this study were 9 Rambon beef cattle. This
research was conducted by providing various combination of feed to experimental
animal. The experimental design used was the completely randomized design with
three treatments and seven replications as time of collection feces. P0 was control
treatment while P1 and P2 used as different feed combination. Result of research
showed that nitrogen-free extract value of feed by Rambon cattle there were
significantly differences (p<0.05). The best result of nitrogen-free extract was on P2 as
94.844% significantly different with P1 90.558% and the lowest result was 89.748%.
result of digestibility of nitrogen-free extract of combination feed by Rambon cattle
showed that there were any significantly difference (p<0.05). The best result of
digestible nitrogen-free extract was on P2 as 94.844% significantly different with P1
as 90.558 and P0 as 89.748.
