Abstract

In order to further improve the conception rate in artificial insemination of Sika deer, the effects of two kinds of different processing methods-estrus synchronization and teasing on the conception rate were studied. The results showed that the conception rate by teasing method was 72.3%,...

Abstract

It is difficult to mate Sika does with Wapiti bucks due to differences in body size, estrus period and other environmental factors, although their hybrids have high economic value. In this study, we determined the optimal period of artificial insemination and analyzed specific assisted reproductive ...

Abstract

North American reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) are seasonally polyestrus short-day breeders. Seasonal ovarian activity begins in late August with an estrous cycle length of 24±3.4 days. Estrous synchronization protocols have been published and are similar to protocols in sheep and goats. ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the effect of insemination timing on pregnancy rates in red deer (Cervus elaphus) when using sex-sorted sperm samples. Semen was collected by electroejaculation from 8 mature stags and processed to obtain: Conventional samples, following standard freezing...
