AbstractFull Text

The objective of this study was to evaluate the sperm quality of Canindé (native) and British Alpine (exotic) goats in the Northeast of Brazil. The experiment was carried out from July to September of the years 2015 and 2016. Sperm collections of Canindé (n=4) and British Alpine (n=7) males were...

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...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is the single most important assisted reproductive technique devised to facilitate the genetic improvement of livestock. In the swine industry, it has broadly replaced natural service over the last number of decades which has been made possible by the high pregnancy...

AbstractFull Text

We studied the relation between some in vitro sperm quality parameters and the in vivo fertility in goats from the Murciano-Granadina breed. Refrigerated semen doses were prepared from 13 bucks and were inseminated into 549 goats. Motility and sperm plasma membrane integrity (PMI) were evaluated in ...

Abstract

Ex situ conservation breeding for species recovery often must address small founder number. Here we investigated the long-term effects of small founder size in the endangered black-footed ferret Mustela nigripes using 20 years of reproductive data. Specifically, we studied seminal traits, pregnancy ...

Abstract

The ability to produce viable progeny is a complex trait, involving both male and female components. In poultry, mating ratios are usually 1 male to 6 to 12 females. Consequently, the impact of male reproductive failure is much greater than that for a female. In this study, the genetic...

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...

Abstract

The research work was carried out to evaluate the effects of age and breed on semen quality of beef bull sires. The experimental site was located at Singosari National Artificial Insemination Center, Malang, Indonesia. A total of 180 ejaculate semen which were collected from 9 beef bull sires (3...

Abstract

This study aimed to assess characteristics of bovine cryopreserved sperm and evaluate its relation to field fertility in fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI). Semen samples of 16 bulls were used to inseminate 811 Nellore cows, and four of these bulls were also used to inseminate 101 Nellore...

Abstract

In horse breeding, quality assessment of semen before insemination is often requested. Non-laboratory-based techniques for objective analysis of sperm motility are thus of interest. The aim of this study was evaluating a portable device for semen analysis (Ongo sperm test) and its comparison with...
