Abstract

Background: Artificial insemination is a preferred breeding method for beef heifers as it advances the genetic background, produces a predictive and profitable calving season, and extends the heifer's reproductive life span. As reproductive efficiency in heifers is key for the success of beef...

Abstract

The porcine industry is of great importance worldwide, and so any technological innovation in one or more of the associated production areas is of interest for meat production. Among such innovations in the reproduction area, post-cervical or intrauterine artificial insemination (PCAI) has emerged...

Abstract

Reproductive traits are important factors in sheep production. The Booroola fecundity (FecB) gene - the first major gene for prolificacy identified in sheep - has a positive effect on ovulation rates and litter size under natural reproductive conditions. However, the effect of the FecB gene on...

Abstract

Sertoli cell numbers are a major influence on sperm production capacity. Increased use of artificial insemination and the limited number of insemination doses from a single boar ejaculate provide the incentive to increase Sertoli cell numbers for potential increases in sperm production and pig...

Abstract

Cryopreservation of semen and artificial insemination have an important, positive impact on cattle production, and product quality. Through the use of cryopreserved semen and artificial insemination, sperm from the best breeding bulls can be used to inseminate thousands of cows around the world....

Abstract

A survey of in vivo fertility data from 31 pig farms distributed worldwide was conducted to determine whether stimulating boar semen with LED-based red light increases its reproductive performance following artificial insemination (AI). Red-light stimulation with MaXipig® was found to increase...

Abstract

Boars have a decisive impact on the progress in pig production, however, there is no recent information about the optimal growth parameters during the rearing period for modern breed later used in artificial insemination (AI) stations. Therefore, the objective of the research was to conduct semen...

Abstract

In sheep industry, genetic progress rate achieved by artificial insemination (AI) is limited by the convoluted anatomy of the cervix, which does not allow the passage of an insemination catheter for uterine semen deposition. The aim of this study was to test, in 98 pregnant at term Sarda ewes, the...

Abstract

Accelerometers (neck- and leg-mounted) and ultra-wide band (UWB) indoor localization sensors were combined for the detection of calving and estrus in dairy cattle. In total, 13 pregnant cows and 12 cows with successful insemination were used in this study. Data were collected two weeks before and...
