Abstract


An experiment was conducted to examine the nutritive value, digestibility and gas production of fermented sugar
palm peel with pineapple peel. The treatment was conducted as a 3×2 factorial in a completely randomized design
(CRD). The experiment consisted of six treatment combinations; sugar palm peel to pineapple peel ratios (2:1, 1:1
and 1:2 by weight) and fermentation times (day-14 and day-21). All treatment combinations were fermented under
anaerobic condition in airtight plastic pouches. The result showed that ether extract content of fermented sugar palm
peel with pineapple peel in 2:1 ratio at day-14 was significantly higher than other treatment combinations (P
