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...

Abstract

Background: Subfertility decreases the efficiency of the cattle industry because artificial insemination employs spermatozoa from a single bull to inseminate thousands of cows. Variation in bull fertility has been demonstrated even among those animals exhibiting normal sperm numbers, motility, and...

Abstract

The porcine industry is of great importance worldwide, and so any technological innovation in one or more of the associated production areas is of interest for meat production. Among such innovations in the reproduction area, post-cervical or intrauterine artificial insemination (PCAI) has emerged...

Abstract

The study of reproductive physiology in domestic ruminants has progressed from the whole animal to the molecular level in an amazingly short period of time. The volume of information on this subject is enormous; therefore, we have focused on domestic ruminants, with an emphasis on cattle. To date, ...
