At present, business of people's dairy cows in Ngantang District is still carried out traditionally. Commonly, the feeds provided are concentrates, additives and forages (elephant grass, corn stalks, field grass). This study aims to analyze efficiency of concentrate, additive and forage feed in the production of dairy cows in Ngantang District, Malang Regency. Population in this study were all dairy farmers from three villages in Ngantang District: Pandansari, Jombok and Waturejo Villages. Sample was determined by simple random sampling method of 100 farmers. Data analysis method used is multiple linear regression models. The results showed, the factors that had a significant effect on cow's milk production were forage and concentrate feed. NPMxi/Pxi = 1,704 (NPMxi/Pxi > 1) indicates that forage feeding has not been efficient so that forage feeding can be increased. NPMxi/Pxi concentrate feed is 0.053 (NPMxi/Pxi < 1), indicating that concentrate feed is inefficient so the amount must be reduced.
