Cassava peels is one of agriculture waste having potency as feed for poultry. CassavaÂ peels represent waste product from cassava industry with amount 1,998 million ton inÂ the year 2006 in Indonesia (10 percentage of corm of yielded cassava). The weaknessÂ of cassava peels are low crude protein content, less palatable for ruminant and haveÂ voluminous characteristic. One of the effort to increase usefulness of cassava peels isÂ by using cassava peels as fibre source in pellet complete ration for poultry. The aim ofÂ this research was to know best level from utilization of cassava peels as physic qualityÂ in poultry complete ration. This study used Completely Randomized Design that consists
of three treatments and three replications. The treatments were: 1). Control feeds + 0%Â cassava peels (R1), 2). Control feeds + 30% dry matter cassava peels (R2), 3). ControlÂ feeds + 30% boiling matter cassava peels (R3). Data was analysed with ANOVA andÂ continued with Duncan Test. The result indicated that effect of water content pelletÂ ration with moisture tool is higher than using infrared tool. Pellet rations with dry matterÂ and boiling matter control treatment before saving have physic qualities that still meetÂ the quality standar of poultry ration. Eventhough, on treatment after saving, the physicÂ qualities decrease and relatively less meet the quality standar of poultry rationKey word: waste, cassava peels, poultry ration, pellet complete.
