Abstract

The development of a flock of females that can produce eggs and maintain egg production rate without the presence of males is a prerogative for a viable artificial insemination protocol in ostriches. Over six consecutive breeding seasons (May-December, 2009-2014), we recorded the egg production...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of breed and follicular status of Boer and indigenous goats on response to superovulation and embryo yield. The oestrous cycles were synchronized with progestagen for nine days and superovulated with porcine follicle-stimulating hormone. Does were cervically...

AbstractFull Text

The objectives of the current study were to evaluate the estrous response and pregnancy rate following timed artificial insemination (TAI) with frozen-thawed semen in cows. The study was carried out in cows at different villages of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN; n=160) and Limpopo provinces (L; n=171). Cows...

Abstract

Sperm macrocephaly syndrome (SMS) is characterised by a high percentage of spermatozoa with enlarged heads and multiple tails, and is related to infertility. Although this multiple sperm defect has been described in other mammalian species, little is known about this anomaly in birds. Morphological ...

AbstractFull Text

The widespread use of artificial insemination in the pig industry has provided breeders with access to genetic material from superior boars from around the world. Selection of parent stock is based on estimated breeding values (EBVs), which are regularly computed in all countries performing genetic ...
