Tambora leaf (Ageratum conizoides Linn) is a wild plant that can be found on roadsides, forests, fields and open land. This plant can be found in Kalimantan and can be used as a medicine for wounds and digestive disorders can be attributed to its activity as an anti-bacterial. This research was conducted to determine the effect of giving Tambora leaves in the infusion method using drinking water to the physical quality value of meat and total bacteria. This research was conducted at the Faculty of Agriculture, Mulawarman University from November to December 2019. Factorial experiments in a completely randomized design with five treatments and five replications were used in this study. The single factor in this research is the infusion of Tambora leaves in drinking water for broiler chickens. The data obtained were analyzed using variance (ANOVA) and further tested using DMRT at the 5% level. This study shows that giving tambora leaves (Ageratum conizoides Linn) to drinking water for broiler chickens has no significant effect on the physical quality of meat and total bacteria in chicken intestines, because of the high number of bacteria found in the intestine with the results of testing with the KIT method, testing the physical quality with the value of the water holding capacity of61.25, pH of meat amounting to 5.95, and Cook Losses amounted to 28.24. This study shows that giving tambora leaves (Ageratum conizoides Linn) to drinking water for broiler chickens has no significant effect on the physical quality of meat and total bacteria in chicken intestines.
