Generally, beef cattle and food crop business are still being diversified and have not implemented  yet  in  integrated  farming.  From  those  reason  above,  we  need  a  model  of integration  of  beef  cattle  and  crop  Systems  (SISPOTTA),  namely  farming  systems  that  was integrate between beef cattle business with crops as an effort to develop sustainable livestock, especially  for  areas  with  irrigation  fields.  Purpose  of  this  research  was  to  analyze  the sustainability status of economic dimension, ecology, technology, social and institution of the integrated  system  of  cattle  business  and  crop  farming  in  irrigation  fields.  Determination location  of  this  research  was  carried  out  based  on  the  Multistage  Sampling  Method,  each location  was  carried  out  by  Purpose  Sampling.  Jember  district  was  chosen  as  the  location  of this research, because from the previous survey information showed that Jember district had a rice field area used a technical irrigation system so those field can applied a cropping pattern model  within  one  year  with  rice  plants  and  other  food  crops  such  as  corn,  and  soybeans. Besides,  farmers  are  accustomed  to  raising  cattle,  especially  beef  cattle  additional  activities besides  crop  farming.  This  research  conducted  from  November  2016  to  April  2017. Sustainability Analysis with MDS Rap-Sispotta as the data Analysis of this research. Based on the  five  existing  dimensions,  the  results  showed  that  the  agribusiness  integration  system  of cattle  and  crops  in  this  research  area  has  a  sustainability  index  value  of  42.40.  This  index showed  that  agribusiness  is  still  less  sustainable.  The  dimensions  that  have  the  worst sustainability  index  and  need  to  be  taken  seriously  at  are  technology  and  infrastructure dimensions, also law and institutional dimensions.
