Herbal medicine has been traditionally administered to ruminants thoughout East Java. It is generally believed that administration of such a medicine would improve feed intake and general condition of animal health. Nevertheless, there which the herbal medicine influence apetite and health. This premilinary study aimed at evaluating the effect of herbal medicine (produced by P.T. Air Mancur) administration towards diurnal variation of rumen protozoa and an-aerobic sporangia population, and its subsequence influence on feed digestibility. Six rams wighing on average 9,82 kg BW0,75(approximately 10 month old) were penned individually in the wooden-slatted cage. Each animal was equipped with a rumen cannula. In the first period all animals were fed with a diet consisted of Cynodon plectostachyus, Brachiaria decumbens and Panicum maximum c.v. Petrie hay (DM to 2.5% BW), plus commercial concentrate (30 g/kg BB0,75). Following the cessation of period I, the animals were administered 2,82 g/kg BW0,75 from the recommended dose of herbal medicine per day for 20 concecutive days where all parameters measured in period I were repeated. The results showed that herbal medicine tended to reduce rumen protozoa and concomitantly increased the number of fungal sporangia invaded on the leaf blade Cynodon plectostachyus. This increase is believed to be responsible for 6% increment in feed digestibility. Key words : Ruminans, Herbal medicine, protozoa, funggal, sporangia, feed digestibility.
