Abstract

Due to lower farrowing rate and reduced litter size with frozen-thawed semen, over 90% of artificial insemination (AI) is conducted using liquid stored boar semen. Although substantial progress has been made towards optimizing the cryopreservation protocols for boar sperm, the influencing factors...

Abstract

We adopt husbandry training for measurement of body weight and body temperature, and blood collection into many animal species as the rearing management at Omuta city zoo. Adopting husbandry training, it has enabled, by only behavioral restraint, the medical examination and examination of the...

Abstract

Beef cattle numbers in Japan are decreasing with the loss of farmers. Improvement of productivity is necessary to allow the remaining farmers to stabilize cattle production and management. The calving-to-conception interval, which has increased in recent years, must be reduced. We made a system...

Abstract

Many endemic fish species are threatened with extinction. Conservation strategies and the restoration of endemic fish after extinction must therefore be investigated. Although sperm cryopreservation is indispensable for the conservation of endangered fishes, the limited number of mature fish and...

Abstract

Endometritis is one of the causes of poor reproductive performance in dairy cattle. The objectives of this study were (1) to investigate the prevalence of clinical endometritis based on vaginal mucus scoring (VMS) determined by vaginoscopy and (2) to determine possible risk factors associated with...

AbstractFull Text

Some dairy cows display a pronounced reduction in first milk yield after estrus onset. The objective of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the pronounced reduction in milk yield as an indicator of the optimal time for artificial insemination (AI). We confirmed that the frequency of a...
