Abstract

The quality of extenders and the synchronization of heat are key factors in the success of artificial insemination in rabbit breeding. The aim of the study is to set up local extender for artificial insemination and evaluate the effect of heat synchronization on the success of artificial ...

Abstract

The success of a commercial rabbit farm depends on increased number of kindling in a year, around 7 to 8 kindling as against the normal 3 to 4 kindling per doe per year. The problem of heat detection and the psuedopregnancy that results from sterile copulation also contribute to the lowered numbers ...

Abstract

The present study was designed to prove new rabbit insemination extenders containing aminopeptidase inhibitors (AMIs) with or without chitosan (CS)-dextran sulfate (DS) nanoparticles entrapping the GnRH analogue. In addition, different hormone concentrations were tested in these extenders,...

Abstract

On commercial farms, rabbit does are subjected to a reproductive rhythm that does not account for their welfare or physiology, leading to reduced longevity and consequently high annual replacement. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends limited and infrequent use of hormone...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the energy balance and dynamic of body reserves in rabbit females divergently selected for longevity. One hundred and twenty-nine females from a high longevity line (HL) and 131 females of a low longevity line (LL) were studied from the 1st to the 3rd kindling....

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this work was to analyze the effect of intravaginal administration of commercial preparation Supergestran (GnRH) as a substitute for its intramuscular administration to induce ovulation of inseminated does. GnRH analysis of reproductive performance is divided into experiments focused on...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this work was to analyse the effect of incubation HPA (lectin Helix pomatia agglutinin) with ID (insemination dose) on reproduction parameters (conception ratio, number of live and dead born of pups and birth weight of pups) of rabbits. The experiments were carried out under conditions...

Abstract

Cooled ram sperm stored for prolonged intervals is not suitable for artificial insemination due to sperm damage. However, the addition of gelatin to rabbit and pig semen protected sperm viability during prolonged storage. The objective was to evaluate effects on sperm quality by adding gelatin to...

AbstractFull Text

In induced ovulating does, the main factor responsible for ovulation induction is the genital somatosensory stimuli during the copulation. In camelids, ovulation induction requires multiple ejaculatory series and the seminal plasma contains a protein, the β-NGF, with a potent ovulatory effect....

Abstract

In rabbit farms, artificial insemination is usually undertaken using semen preserved around 18°C. However, increased reactive oxygen species levels during preservation produce sperm dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of adding superoxide dismutase (SOD) antioxidant mimics (Tempo and...
