Abstract: Palm Kernel Meal is well known as raw material with a balanced nutritional value, especially as livestock feed. It also widely used by livestock producers as a supplementary feed. However, the nutritive values of this by-product vary and depend on many factors. Proximate analysis values are important for analyzing feed quality for feed formulation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the quality of PKM from twelve years’ data from 1999 to 2010. Results show that the nutrient content of PKM over the past twelve years in livestock feed is not consistent.
