Abstract

In this study we determined mortality in breeding rabbits on 505 commercial farms in Spain during 2006-2014. We obtained our information by carrying out 3278 visits to 490 doe farms (127 also with males), and 877 visits to farms with males, including 132 visits to 15 artificial insemination (AI)...

Abstract

This study assessed the effects of management factors and weather at artificial insemination (AI) on fertility rate in the Florida goat breed based on 7621 artificial inseminations from 47 farms in Spain. Overall, fertility rate was 55%. Farm (P<0.0001), month (P<0.01), number of previous kiddings (P<0.05), milk production at AI (P<0.05), interval between last kidding and AI (P<0.0001), the person responsible for selecting animals for AI (P<0.05), progestagen dose (P<0.001), eCG dose (P<0.0001), sperm dose (P<0.05), site of insemination (P<0.001), incidences at AI (P<0.0001), fulfillment of AI timing schedule (P<0.0001), buck (P<0.0001), and technician (P<0.001) had a significant effect on fertility rate. Mean and maximum temperatures (T) (P<0.001) and solar radiation (SR) on the day of AI differed significantly between does that became pregnant and those that did not. After meteorological data were converted to categorical variables as deciles, the proportions of does that became pregnant were significantly higher among inseminations that were performed when...
