Research design used t-test with treatments: T0 = Mix forage+concentrate and T1 = Mix forage+concentrate+biscuit 15%. Parameters were milk production and calcium content. The research resulted that biscuit bio-supplement affected milk production and calcium content significantly (p<0.05). Biscuit bio-supplement contained papaya leaves increased calcium content until 174.832 mg/100 g. Active compounds in papaya leave was proved increases milk production and calcium content.
