Abstract

Seminal characteristics of 19 pooled seminal plasma of Six Gramapriya hybrid cock were studied. The mean values of analyzed biochemical (macro and trace elements) and enzymatic constituents were found to be calcium 6.78±0.26 mg/dl, inorganic phosphorous 3.22±0.29 mg/dl, magnesium 5.93±0.18 mg/dl,...
