Abstract

The increased exportation of semen and embryos of double-muscled beef breeds to tropical and developing countries makes it important to investigate the reproductive capacity of these breeds in adapting to tropical conditions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of Belgian Blue semen...

Abstract

This study was aimed to explore the effect of adding pentoxifylline (PTX) and nitric oxide (NO) to Tris extender on some post-cryopreserved semen attributes of Holstein bulls for different preservation periods (cooling at 5°C, 48 hrs., 1, 2 and 3 months post cryopreservation, PC). Seven Holstein...

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

Semen quality assessment requires accurate, reliable and objective methods for examination of sperm variables including sperm motility. For preparation of semen samples for artificial insemination, as a genetic resource, samples that are used for insemination need to have the capacity to result in...

AbstractFull Text

In our previous Genome-wise Association Study we found that Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator gene (CFTR) is a candidate gene for sperm motility in fresh semen of Holstein-Friesian bulls. Since in cows thawed semen is commonly used for the artificial insemination (AI) we have...
