OPTIMIZATION OF MAGGOT (HERMETIA ILLUCENS) USING HOUSEHOLD WASTE MEDIA ON ECONOMIC ANALYZING OF NATIVE CHICKEN AT STARTER PERIOD
The purpose of the study was to determine the potential of maggot with household waste media as local feed for the economic analyzing of native chicken. The materials used in this study were maggot flour from household waste media with tofu dregs as food ingredients, 120 of native chickens 0-6 weeks age old, commercial feed, basalt feed consisting of corn, rice bran, soybean meal, fish meal, coconut oil, salt and premix. The basal ration was prepared with a Metabolizable Energy (EM) of 3000 kcal/kg and 19% crude protein. This study used non-factorial completely randomized design (CRD) consisting of 6 treatments and 4 replications as follows: P0: control 1 (chicken fed commercial feed), P1: control 2 (basal ration), P2: basal ration + administration of maggot and its medium 5%, P3: basal ration + administration of maggot and its medium 10%, P4: basal ration + administration of maggot and its media 15%, and P5: basal ration + administration of maggot and its media 20%. Parameters observed include production costs, profit/loss analysis, R/C ratio analysis and income over feed cost (IOFC). The results of the research showed that the provision of maggot flour and its media can be used up to 20% (P5). These treatments can increase the profits, R/C ratio, IOFC, and reduce the production costs. Conclusion of the research was the provision of maggot flour with the media from household waste up to 20% had a positive result on economic analyzing of native chickens at starter period.
