Abstract

Artificial insemination has an important role in goat breeding. Semen cryopreservation could provide genetic material from a small number of superior sires to a large number of females. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of bovine serum albumin (BSA) on sperm parameters ...

Abstract

Frozen-thawed boar sperm (FTS) has reduced motility and viability compared to cooled semen. Motility of FTS is related to in vitro and in vivo fertility, but this effect has not been determined in relation to the timing of ovulation. To test the effect of variable FTS motility in a multiple-AI...

AbstractFull Text

The off-breeding season for rams is a time-limiting factor for their use in scientific aims. This research was set upon two aims: (1) to acknowledge the differences of semen quality collected throughout the year, and (2) to investigate which of the two commonly used methods for semen collection (...
