Direct Fed Microbial are beneficial microbes to improve microbial balance in the digestive tract. Isolation of bacteria aims to obtain the potential bacteria as Direct Fed Microbial for ruminant. This research used descriptive methods. Identification used API test (Analytical Profile Index) methods. The results showed that there are two bacteria has potential as Direct Fed Microbial,those are Bacillus licheniformis bacteria and Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp delbrueckii bacteria, both have the same characteristics as the bacteria in the rumen.
Key words: Isolation, Identification, Bioprocess, Banana Stem, Direct Fed Microbial
