Abstract

The present study was conducted to analyse the factors influencing the success of artificial insemination (AI) in pigs using extended fresh semen in rural smallholder pig farms. One hundred female pigs from Rulindo and Gicumbi districts in Northern Region of Rwanda were artificially inseminated...

Abstract

Artificial insemination with frozen-thawed semen in pigs is not a routine technique; its use is restricted to specific cases, such as preservation of valuable genetic material (germplasm banks), safety strategies in case of natural disasters, long-distance transport of sperm, and in combination...

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

The preservation of chilled boar semen for artificial insemination is the most performed worldwide. For this, the sperm are extended in medium that provides substrates to nourish and protect these cells. However, the storage temperature range of chilled semen is not able to completely stop the...

Influência do resveratrol na qualidade e na fertilidade do espermatozoide suíno refrigerado entre 15-17°C por 72 horas para inseminação artificial intrauterina, 2016, pp 125 pp.
Abstract

Boars have a decisive impact on the progress in pig production, however, there is no recent information about the optimal growth parameters during the rearing period for modern breed later used in artificial insemination (AI) stations. Therefore, the objective of the research was to conduct semen...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to verify the fertility of cryopreserved boar sperm by heterospermic insemination performed by a mix of a liquid stored and post-thaw sperm. The second objective of this study was to utilize the benefits of a liquid stored insemination doses to reduce a negative...

AbstractFull Text

Introduction. Artificial insemination of sows with cooled semen has become a routine practice in the swine industry and has almost completely ruled out natural mating. The storage time of the cooled semen and preservation of its qualitative parameters are of the upmost importance and depend partly...

Abstract

Boar exposure is used to stimulate follicle development and estrus in sows after weaning and also to improve semen uptake and sperm transport with insemination. However, the need and value of boar exposure is uncertain when ovulation induction is used. These studies were designed to determine the...

Abstract

The aim of the research was to contribute towards improved pig reproductive performance in Uganda, through determining community boar stud semen quality as affected by boar traits and comparing the performance of single and double insemination. Semen ejaculates (n=36) from mature boars (3 Large...

AbstractFull Text

Sperm quality plays an important role in determining fertility. The aim of the study was to examine the relationship between sperm plasma membrane integrity and morphology, and fertility following artificial insemination (AI). A total of 16 ejaculates were collected from three Large White boars...
