Based on carrying capacity of crop residues production in Pesawaran regency reached until 393.855 AU with 36.65 worth the carrying capacity Index. By looking at the results of the carrying capacity index calculations in Pesawaran regency, all areas have the potential for the development of beef cattle. Based on the capacity of cattle assuming the provision of rations of 30% as many as 601.385 AU have additional opportunities of 586.107 head of cattles while the rations of 40% as many as 451.039 AU have additional opportunities 435.684 head of cattles.
