Abstract

The objective was to evaluate the reproductive performance of frozen sex-sorted sperm at 4×106 sperm per dose (SexedULTRA 4 M, Sexing Technologies, Navasota, TX) relative to frozen conventional sperm in seasonal-calving pasture-based dairy cows. Semen from Holstein-Friesian (n=8) and Jersey (n=2)...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate whether health, survival, and performance of dairy heifers from birth through first lactation are associated with parity and health status of their dams. Holstein heifers (n=1,811) derived from artificial insemination were categorized as (1) daughters...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to estimate genetic parameters and genetic trends for male fertility in Norwegian Red bulls. We analyzed data on semen characteristics traits collected at the performance test station of young bulls from 1994 to 2016, in an andrology test used to ensure acceptable semen...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the effects of prepartum negative dietary cation-anion difference diet (DCAD) fed at two dietary Ca inclusion rates on postpartum uterine health and ovulation dynamics of multiparous Holstein cows (n=76). Treatments began at 28 days before expected...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the association of beta-carotene concentration in plasma at the moment of artificial insemination (AI) on pregnancy/AI in lactating Holstein cows. A total of 399 events from 364 lactating Holstein cows were enrolled in the trial (143 primiparous and 221...

Abstract

The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of recombinant bovine somatotropin (bST) on pregnancy per artificial insemination (P/AI), cellular composition of the corpus luteum (CL) and endometrial gland morphometry. In Experiment 1, Nelore cows (n=587) received a fixed-time artificial ...

Abstract

We hypothesized that a shortened version of a modified Ovsynch program (OVS: GnRH-1 -7 d-PGF-1 -24 h-PGF-2 -32 h-GnRH-2 -16 h-AI) that excluded GnRH-1 to resynchronize ovulation in cows bearing a corpus luteum (CL) after a non-pregnancy diagnosis (NPD) or including progesterone supplementation...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) has been used as a routine technology globally in the pig production industry since 1930. One of the preferable advantages of AI technology is that the semen of elite boars can be disseminated to the commercial sow population rapidly. Understanding the genetic...
