Cattle integration in oil palm plantation has been a common practice among farmers today. The system has been assumed can increase farmer income; it either implemented intensively or extensively. However, planting oil palm has been criticized due to causing ecological crisis and social conflict. But Aceh Government and its local government has provided aids to support farmers in cultivating oil palm plantation. The purpose is to recover their economy that has been decreased due to Aceh protracted conflict. But some farmers have integrated cattle in their oil palm area. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the impact of the integrated system on the peace aspect. The study was conducted in the regency of East Aceh by qualitative approach. The result shows that the integration of cattle in oil palm plantation has a positive impact on creating positive peace. The system has enhanced the cooperation between the cattle breeders and the oil palm farmers, and they have mutual assistance and benefits. In addition, farmers have much time to participate in social activities.
