The aims of this study were to determine the physical and chemical quality of oil palm frond compost with the addition of ruminant liquid bio-activator cattles (cattle, goats and buffalo). The material used in this research was palm fronds and ruminant animal rumen fluid obtained from Gandus Slaughterhouse in South Sumatra. This study used a Completely Randomized Design with 5 treatments with 3 replications consisting of P0 (compost of oil palm fronds without addition of bio-activator), P1 (Compost of oil palm frond with bio-activator EM4), P2 (Compost of oil palm frond with bio-activator goat rumen liquid), P3 (Compost of oil palm fronds with bovine rumen liquid bio-activator), and P4 (Compost of oil palm fronds with buffalo rumen liquid bio-activator). The parameters measured in the study are physical quality (odor, texture, pH, temperature and color) and chemical quality (nitrogen, water content, phosphorus, calcium and C-organic). The data obtained were analyzed by ANOVA, if there any significant differences were followed by Duncan's test. The best ruminant rumen bio-activator in the composting process is cow bio-activator, with produced temperature of 33.66 ºC, moisture content of 61.47%, particle size of 74.0%, compost color is dark, compost has soil smelt, pH 7.30, N-Total 0.50%, P-Available 0.0061%, K-Total 0.24, C-Organic 6.58 and C/N 13%.
