Abstract

The aim of this research is to improve the nutritional quality (crude protein, gross energy and crude fat) in basal feed for poultry by providing earthworm meal as a substitute for fish meal. The hypothesis of this research is that the use of earthworm meal as a substitute for fish meal can increase the nutritional value (crude protein, gross energy and crude fat) in basal feed for cnpoultry. The materials used in the research were earthworm flour, fine corn bran, rice bran, DDGS (Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles), soybean meal, fish meal, coconut oil, premix and salt. Materials for chemical feed nutrition tests are H2SO4, NaOH, Acetone, Boric acid HCl and methyl red indicator. The research method used in the research was a non-factorial Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 5 treatments and 4 replications. The treatments given were as follows: P0 (Basal feed for poultry (using 10% fish meal without earthworm meal) / Control); P1 (Basal feed for poultry (using 7.5% fish meal and 2.5% earthworm meal)); P2 (Basal feed for poultry (using 5% fish meal and 5% earthworm meal)); P3 (Basal feed for poultry (using 2.5% fish meal and 7.5% earthworm meal); P4 (Basal feed for poultry (using 10% earthworm meal without fish meal)). The parameters observed include analysis of the nutritional content of crude protein, gross energy and crude fat. Proximate testing is carried out in the laboratory. The conclusion of this research is that giving earthworm meal as a substitute for fish meal in basal feed for poultry up to a level of 10% can increase crude protein, gross energy and crude fat.
