Abstract

The livestock sector is a source of economic in Malaysia. According Veterinary Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and in 2010, they said Malaysia has a total of 43310 cow breeders, 3925 buffalo breeders and 25509 goat breeders across Malaysia. Nowadays, farming industry faces a problem in the production of animal feed and various means have been made to overcome this problem is through mechanization. Mechanization which is an alternative used to increase productivity for the production of for age, mechanization was introduced by scientists and researchers invented a machine which is chopper machine. Objectives this study is to identify effectiveness in producing product and research on physiological factors determining energy expenditure in terms of heart rate and rate of calorie burning while doing work. Case study was conducted in Ladang Ternakan Rusa Rong Chenok, Pasir Mas, Kelantan using chopper machines Victa model VCM-250.Based on results of the study, chopper machines shows that actual productivity lower than the theoretical productivity. Heart rate beats recommendations for a normal healthy adult males will stand at 70-80 beats per minute, heart rate and rate of calories burned for a man can change based on the type activities of certain individuals and also depends on factors such age. Thus, based on the study, conclusions can be drawn is that the chopper machine is only suitable for a small number of livestock and machinery is suitable for all ages of workers because it can help in burning calories for purposes health
