Fifty eight broiler farmers, who have implemented partnership, were selected as the sample based on stratified random sampling methods which were distributed proportionally in the long time of partnership period which was 1-5 years, 6-10 years, and more than 11 year. Then, the respondents from each stratum were randomly chosen. In addition, descriptive analysis and Importance-Performance Analysis (IPA) were used to analyze of the data. The results of this study indicated that the level of satisfaction of broiler farmers on implementing the partnership including the classification was quite good. This was reflected by the result of performance analysis between compatibility and interests of farmers which gave a value of 77.04% of the 19 attributes of service quality dimensions of firm nucleus analyzed.
