Since the use of antibiotics is prohibited to improve the quality of animal products, as well as increase product yields, researchers have begun to focus on the use of phytogenic compounds as non-antibiotic growth promoters. So this research is important to do to examine the effect of giving carrot leaf meal (CLF) in the ration to increase the quantity and quality of carcass in Bali ducks. This study used 240 male Bali ducks aged two weeks with homogeneous body weight in a completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 6 replications. The four treatments were a group of ducks fed without CLF as a control (A); ration with 3% CLF (B); ration with 6% CLF (C); and rations with 9% CLF (D). The results showed that giving 3-6% CLF in the diet significantly (P<0.05) increased feed consumption, body weight, carcass weight, carcass percentage, breast meat, and protein mass of duck meat compared to control (A) and 9% CLF(D). The percentage of abdominal fat and serum cholesterol levels in ducks that received treatment B, C, and D, decreased significantly (P<0.05) compared to treatment A. It can be concluded that the use of 3-6% carrot leaf flour in the ration can increase the percentage carcass and meat protein mass. On the other hand, it reduces abdominal fat and serum cholesterol levels in bali ducks.
