Corn cobs is one of agriculture waste which is applicable as one of alternative feed ingredients, despite its low nutritional and high fibre contents; it can used as fibre resource of complete feed to male kacang goats. The objective of this research is to evaluate effects of giving total mixed ration containing different levels of corn cobs on performance male kacang goats. The experiment was carried out according to 4 x 4 Latin Square Design. In each period of 12 days, each goat was randomly assigned to one of the following treatments: T1 (complete ration containing 30 % corn cobs), T2 (complete ration containing 35 % corn cobs), T3 (complete ration containing 40 % corn cobs), and T4 (complete ration containing 45 % corn cobs).

Tongkol jagung merupakan limbah pertanian yang dapat digunakan sebagai pakan alternatif, walaupun kandungan nutrisi tongkol jagung rendah dan serat kasarnya tinggi, tapi dapat digunakan sebagai sumber serat dalam pakan komplit pada kambing kacang jantan. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk melihat sejauh mana tongkol jagung dalam pakan komplit memberikan pengaruh terhadap penampilan kambing kacang jantan. Penelitian ini dirancang menurut Rancangan Bujur Sangkar Latin 4 x 4. Perlakuan terdiri dari T1 (pakan komplit mengandung 30 % tongkol jagung), T2 ( pakan komplit mengandung 35 % tongkol jagung), T3 (pakan komplit mengandung 40 % tongkol jagung, dan T4 (pakan komplit mengandung 45 % tongkol jagung). Sidik ragam menunjukkan bahwa perlakuan tersebut tidak berpengaruh nyata (P>0,05) terhadap penampilan kambing kacang jantan. Maka, dapat disimpulkan bahwa perbedaan level tongkol jagung dalam pakan komplit tidak berpengaruh secara negatif terhadap penampilan kambing kacang jantan
