The experiment was conducted to determine the quality of Boer semen supplemented with vitamin E and Zn mineral. The experimen t was carried out at the Installation of Frozen Semen Production Livestock and Veterinary Service of Lampung Province f or 50 days. Twelve Boer goats with the age of 3 years used in this experiment. The experimental animals were divided into four treatment groups, i.e. , group I (P0)= without the administration of vitamin E and Zn mineral supplementation, group 2 (P1)= was supplemented with vitamin E 50 IU/goat/day, group 3 (P2)= was supplemented with Zn 25 mg/goat/day, and group 4 (P3)= was supplemented with vitamin E 50 IU/goat/day and Zn 25 mg/goat/day. The experiment data were statistically analyzed using completely randomized design and then continued with Least Significant Difference (LSD) test to analyze the differences between means. The results showed that supplementation of vitamin E, Zn mineral, and combination significantly increased (P<0.01) live-cells and (P<0.05) motility and abnormality spermatozoa, but did not affect semen volume and concentration. Supplementation of mineral Zn and combination with vitamin E significantly increased (P<0.05) semen quality. Key words: semen quality, vitamin E, Zn mineral, Boer goat
