The effect of probiotic in fermented Palm kernel Meal to improve milk production in dairy cattle was studied. Probiotic Bacillus spp was given through concentrate after fermented for three days. The trial was carried out at the Dairy unit , Institut Veterinar. Twenty Mafriwal cows (20) that low milk production were selected and diveded into two (2) equivalent group. Each group consists of 10 cows. Group A were fed Total mixed Ration (TMR). Group B were received Total mixed Ration (TMR) and 100 grams per head / day fermented PKM , probiotic Bacillus spp and mollases. Every day the cows were given TMR consist of 20 kg per head of fresh Napier grass, 5 kg per head Palm kernel meal, 1 kg per head soya bean meal ,1 kg per head corn, 0.5 kg per head molases and 0.5 kg per head enalac. Feeding trial was carried out for four(4) weeks. Feed was given twice a day, morning and late afternoon, meanwhile water was given ad- libitum. Animals are given the same diet for seven (7) days for a adaptation period. Milk sampling were taken twice a day for 4 weeks and were recorded. The result of observation showed Group B that the milk production before probiotic treament to 4 th week were improved from 5.2 liter/head /day to 6.99 liter/head /day. It could be concluded that the probiotic supplementation improved milk yield around 14.80 % to 34.44%.
