Inclusive Z boson plus jets cross sections, as well as bottom jet production in association with a Z-boson cross sections, are measured in a final state where the Z boson has decayed in two muons or electrons. Results are based on $\sim 9$ fb$ ^{-1}$ of data in $\rm p\bar{p}$ collisions at $\rm \sqrt{s}$ = 1.96 TeV collected with the CDF detector in Run II. Differential cross sections are measured as a function of several variables, among which jet transverse momentum, jet rapidity and jets multiplicity. Measurements are compared to results from different next-to-leading order perturbative QCD predictions and event generators.
