The study aims to determine the effect of fermented vegetable waste in rations on performance (additional feed income) and income on feed cost (IOFC) of hair sheep. This research was conducted at Animal Biology Laboratory, Animal Husbandry Study Program, Faculty of Agriculture, University of North Sumatera, from June to September 2016. This study used 20 local sheep with initial weight 13.4 ± 1.2 kg. The design used in this study was Completely Randomized Design (RAL) with 5 treatments and 4 replications. Treatment consists of P0 (100% grass without fermented vegetable waste + concentrate), P1 (75% grass and 25% fermented vegetable waste + concentrate), P2 (50% grass and 50% vegetable waste + concentrate), P3 (grass 25% And vegetable waste 75% + concentrate) and P4 (100% fermented vegetable waste + concentrate). The parameters observed were performance (additional food income) and income on feed cost (IOFC). The results of the diversity analysis showed that the utilization of fermented vegetable waste gave no significant effect (P> 0,05) to PBB. but may affect feed conversion and feed consumption. IOFC sheep hair sheep highest on P3 treatment of Rp 204.428,6. The conclusion of this research is the utilization of fermented vegetable waste with Effective Microorganism 4 (EM4) at the level of 75% as local sheep feed material and can be used as alternative feed ingredient for Sheep Sheep Hair Sheep.
