AbstractFull Text

The donkey reproductive physiology is still insufficiently known, despite the increasing risk of extinction for several breeds. The majority of breeders and even veterinary practitioners treat jennets in the same manner as mares, although there are some significant differences. In recent years, the ...

Abstract

China was one of the first countries to use artificial insemination (AI) in equids, and it achieved international recognition for its widespread application of AI to commercial horse breeding. This article reviews the history of equine AI in China. The technique originated from the high demand for...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) involving the placing of frozen-thawed semen directly into the jenny uterine body is associated with very low pregnancy rates. This might be because of an exacerbation of the acute response of the endometrium to sperm, as seen in mares with persistent induced mating...

Abstract

Artificial insemination with cooled semen is routine in equids because of its good fertility rates and relatively low costs. In several donkey breeds, especially in restricted populations, the use of cooled semen could be seen as the best way of improving reproductive performance and avoiding...

AbstractFull Text

The reproductive anatomy of the male donkey is similar to that of the standard horse. The same applies for the female, including the size of the reproductive tract. Female donkeys have a 21- to 28-day estrus cycle with obvious behavioral signs of receptivity when a jack is present. Lactation may...

Abstract

Sixty-three embryos were recovered out of 83 estrous cycles (75.9%) and 98 ovulations (64.3%) of five Pantesca jennies, 2 to 5 yr old, naturally mated or artificially inseminated with fresh semen. Embryo recovery rate was influenced by number of ovulations per cycle (133% and 63% for double and...
