Abstract

This study was conducted to assess the factors that affect pig litter size, proportion of live pigs at birth, number of inseminations per conception, and efficiency of artificial insemination. The main factors assessed were sow breed (n=2), sire breed (n=3), sow parity (n=7) and insemination method ...

Abstract

120 Landrace and Yorkshire hybrid sows (40 replacement gilts and 80 multiparous sows) were selected to study the effect of fixed time artificial insemination on the reproductive performance of sows. The results showed that in the test group, the oestrus rate of replacement gilts was 100%, better...

Abstract

453 Yorkshire, Landrace and Duroc sows were selected and artificially inseminated by deep low-dose (256 sows) (A) and common way (197 sows) (B) according to parity and breed to investigate the effects on reproductive performance. The farrowing rates of A and B were 86.33 and 88.83%, respectively,...

Abstract

To overcome the limitations of conventional analysis of male fertility in animals and humans, proteomic studies have been performed to develop fertility-related biomarkers for prognosis and diagnosis of male fertility. However, the studies were focused on specific species or breeds. Therefore, a...
