Abstract

In 1993 in France, 2 million boar semen doses were used to inseminate around 40% of the sow population, and 470 000 semen doses were used for the insemination of 50 000 rabbits. Of 850 000 goats, 53 319 were inseminated in 1992, and in 1991, 754 000 ewes (representing 10% of all ♀♀) and 5700...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of dietary organic selenium on the turkey semen during storage. Twenty males (BUT, Big 6, 40 weeks of age) were divided into control (n=10) and experimental group (n=10). The turkeys in the both groups were fed with a commercial diet...

Abstract

We investigated the use of duck egg yolk (DEY), Guinea fowl egg yolk (GFEY) and Indian indigenous hen (Desi) egg yolk (IDEY) in extender for improving the post-thaw quality of buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) bull spermatozoa, and compared it with commercial hen egg yolk (CHEY; control). For this purpose, ...

Abstract

In comparison with artificial insemination with fresh semen or short time stored semen, the results of artificial insemination after cryopreservation are not satisfactorily in poultry. Nevertheless, the interest of commercial breeders in cryopreservation is increasing. An increase in utilization of ...

Abstract

A novel method has been developed to freeze chicken semen using N-methylacetamide (MA) as cryoprotective agent. Pooled semen collected from 50 Barred Plymouth Rock roosters was subjected to primary dilution by mixing equal amount of pooled semen with HS-1 extender at 5°C. After primary dilution,...
