Empowerment of Cattle Breeders Supporting the Food Self-Sufficiency Program in North Lampung Regency. Lampung is one of the potential provinces for the development of the livestock sub-sector, which is one of the leading sectors in Lampung, especially as a provider of employment and a source of foreign exchange. Community empowerment activities that emphasize the importance of the role of field extension workers are expected to be able to improve group performance through technical aspects, institutional aspects and business aspects. Based on the goals and targets that have been targeted by the government to increase meat self-sufficiency, it is hoped that farmer groups who receive assistance can improve the performance of their farmer groups and meat production so that the income of farmer group members will increase. The purpose of the study was to analyze the role of field agricultural extension workers (PPL) in strengthening the capacity of cattle farmers and to analyze the impact of empowerment on the level of performance of cattle farmers. The research location was determined purposively with the consideration that North Lampung Regency is one of the areas that has high potential in the development of the livestock sub-sector and is currently activating various farmer empowerment programs, especially cattle breeders. The research was conducted in July-August 2019, with the research areas being Abung Timur Subdistrict and North Sungkai Subdistrict. The population of the Cattle Breeder Strengthening Program participants was 65 farmers and 4 PPL assistants who were all taken as respondents. The data used consisted of primary data and secondary data, testing hypotheses about differences in the performance of farmers in managing their cattle business before and after obtaining the Livestock Area Development Program with McNemar test annon-parametric statistics and descriptive tabulation. The results showed that the level of PPL's role in assisting farmers including good classification, the level of performance of farmers in the use of natural resources and efforts to increase livestock populations experienced a significant increase, and the income of farmers who belonged to farmer groups increased after participating in the Cattle Farmer Area Development Program. Keywords: Empowerment, Cattle Breeding, PPL Performance, Institutional.
