Relationship Between Farmers Weaknesses About Knowledge of Formulation and Feed Technology on Feed Conversion in Alabio Ducks
Keywords:Alabio duck, feed convertion, SWOT analysis
The study aims to determine and analyze the relationship between breeders’ knowledge about feed
formulations and the conversion value of duck feed. The subjects in this study were Alabio duck breeders in
Hambuku Raya Village and Putat Atas Village, Hulu Sungai Utara, South Kalimantan Province, Indonesia
with observed objects in the form of Alabio duck feed conversion and breeders’ knowledge of feed
formulation knowledge and Alabio duck feed technology. The research method used was non-experimental
explorative, the researcher did not give treatment to the group of Alabio ducks and conducted a survey by
distributing questionnaires to farmers. Observation of feed conversion is carried out for 3 (three) months
from February-April 2018 in each group. Observation of feed conversion is carried out starting from Alabio
ducks to produce eggs, which are about 6 months old. Testing of feed conversion, normal data using analysis
of variance (Anova), if significant continued with LSD. Survey research is the stage of analyzing using
SWOT analysis to determine the level of weakness and strength in the framework of the development of
Alabio ducks in the Hulu Sungai Utara Regency of South Kalimantan Province. The results of the analysis
of feed conversion of the three groups were not significantly different, the group of Putat Atas Ducks for
feed conversion an average of 4.51 ducks Hambuku Raya 1 group an average of feed conversion every
month 5.30, the ducks of the Hambuku Raya 2 group the average conversion of feed every month 4.75.
SWOT analysis value of weakness factor is 1,764, this factor includes one of them is knowledge of farmers
about feed formulation. The results of this study are in line with the results of feed conversion in the first
stage of research, the value of feed conversion obtained is still relatively high at 4.51-5.30. The conclusion
is the SWOT analysis score of weakness factors one of which is the lack of knowledge of farmers about
formulation and feed technology affect the high feed conversion.
