This study aimed to evaluate the fiber fraction component and in-vitro digestibility of cocoa pod husk fermented by local microorganisms (MOL), namely the rumen contents. The research used completely randomized design with 5 treatments of 4 replications each. The dose of MOL to ferment pod cocoa was as follows A: 0 ml/kg of substrate, B: 3 ml/kg of substrate C: 6 ml/kg substrate, D: 9 ml/kg of substrate, and E: 12 ml/kg of substrate. The parameters measured were the fiber fraction component of

The results showed that the dose of MOL significantly (P<0.05) affected The NDF, ADF and hemicellulose contents, but it had no effect on cellulose and lignin contents (P>0.05). In vitro dry matters and NDF digestibilities were significantly (P<0.05) affected by the treatments. In conclusion, fermentation by MOL at a dosage of 12 ml/kg substrate reduced fiber fraction component and increased in-vitro digestibilities of dry matter and NDF.
