Eid al-Adha is an important moment in the life of Muslim communities in Indonesia and the world. Every 10th of Zulhijah, this holiday has become an essential part of all levels of society. This is because Eid al-Adha is the peak of the Hajj pilgrimage and can present human values ​​in Islam, a culture of protection and harmony between social strata. The main series of worship on Eid al-Adha is sacrifice.

Talking about sacrificing, nowadays, this cannot be separated from the availability of livestock for sacrifice, including cows and goats. The community has been competing to find sacrificial animals for Eid al-Adha. The choice of sacrificial animals should not be arbitrary. This is because the sacrificial animal must be declared physically healthy apart from religious requirements. For example, not disabled, not diseased, and most importantly, having sufficient body weight. Certainly, sufficient body weight is an important aspect that needs to be considered by the community, especially animal breeders. /in the period leading up to Eid al-Adha, livestock health and fattening are the main concerns for breeders. The health of livestock needs to be maintained, and the provision of feed with balanced nutrition is needed so that the animal's body weight is optimal.

In order to welcome Eid al-Adha, Petrokimia Gresik will later distribute sacrificial animals that are free from various diseases. Especially when there was an issue of FMD in livestock, the sacrificial animals provided by Petrokimia Gresik to the community had their health checked to ensure that they were free from various diseases, including FMD.

Using forage pellets in the form of weeds can be a solution for fattening. Forage pellets have various advantages, such as being weather-resistant, effective, and containing higher protein nutrients. Making it is also quite easy. Forage is mixed and fed into a machine. Then, the forage is dried for 2-3 days. After drying, the pellets can be stored in plastic drums. The color becomes brownish green.
