Abstract

Artificial insemination has been a landmark procedure in improving animal agriculture over the past 150 years. The utility of artificial insemination has facilitated a rapid improvement in animal genetics across agricultural species, leading to improvements of growth, health and productivity in...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was the establishment of an effective protocol for cryopreservation of psittacine semen. Therefore, pooled semen samples of 30 cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus) were diluted with modified Lake diluent (1:4), partitioned into four equal parts. Three portions were mixed...

Abstract

Artificial insemination is commonly used in breeder farms to stabilize fertility. Hens are able to store sperm for a long time and remain fertile, so that they can extend the chicken insemination interval, and thus achieve better economic benefits. In this paper, dwarf brown-shell laying hens were...

Abstract

Guinea fowl hens were inseminated weekly once with two doses of spermatozoa (75 million and 100 million) in two different diluents, Beltsville poultry semen extender (BPSE), and Instruments for Veterinary Medicine (IMV), each with and without pre-insemination vaginal douching. Per cent fertility,...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) in vitro had been pioneered by Russian scientist V.P. Vrassky (1855) and later has been developed and advanced by I.I. Ivanov. The latter has been the first who inseminated hens artificially with the sperm obtained from the seminal ducts of slaughtered cocks (1902). AI...

Abstract

Cryopreservation can enable artificial insemination technology unrestricted by time and space to promote development of goose semen collection; artificial insemination technique plays an important role. If the key technique of semen cryopreservation can be applied maturely, it can speed up the...

AbstractFull Text

Morphological characteristics of turkey Meleagris gallopavo semen were recorded and hatchability percentages of the artificially inseminated hens were assessed. To study the effect of natural mating on hatchability 15 (3♂, 12♀) M. gallopavo were randomly selected, were kept separately and were...

AbstractFull Text

A comparison has been made between natural mating (NM) and artificial insemination (AI) in fast feathering Huainan partridge chickens. A total number of 360 fast feathering Huainan partridge hens and 40 roosters were randomly divided into two equal groups. For NM, 4 mating cages were maintained...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...

Abstract

The effects of different semen collection frequencies on semen quality and the effects of dilution type, volume of semen and insemination interval on fertilization rate and hatching rate of Shanma duck were studied in this experiment. 30 drakes were randomly divided into three groups, 10 for each...
