Abstract

The Balkan donkey (Equus asinus L.) is commonly regarded as a large-sized, unselected, unstructured and traditionally managed donkey breed. We assessed the current genetic status of the three largest E. asinus populations in the central Balkans (Serbia) by analysing the variability of nuclear...

Abstract

Energy balance was assessed during the first 13 weeks postpartum in 497 primiparous Holstein cows and the relationship with reproductive performance was investigated. A significant association was observed between body condition score (BCS) and a number of reproductive traits, including conception...

AbstractFull Text

An investigation involving seven boars, active in artificial insemination, and 1,350 multiparous sows was conducted at a private farm and aimed at examining the relationship between sperm quality traits and boar fertility in terms of farrowing rate and litter size. This experiment was done for 6...

Abstract

Reproductive efficiency in the dairy herd is the most important factor for its economic success and a major concern for dairy farmers when using artificial insemination (AI) or natural service (NS). Our objectives were to estimate, compare and analyse the costs associated with breeding cattle by...

Abstract

Of 212 rabbit females in Greece, inseminated with fresh semen during the summer, 72.17% gave birth to a litter vs. 67.45% of 212 females inseminated with frozen semen. Litter size at birth averaged 7.52 vs. 6.57 young (P<0.01), of which 7.11 and 6.44 were liveborn (P<0.05). Type of semen used had no significant effect on litter size at weaning (6.77 vs. 6.47). Of 440 females in Italy, inseminated with fresh or frozen semen, 74.94 and 73.76% respectively produced a litter, and litter size averaged 8.0 and 8.15 respectively at birth and 7.33 and 7.35 at weaning, the differences between the two insemination groups being non-significant.
