Abstract

The pig production is a sector in constant search for high rates of productivity, and consequently, of animals with high genetic potential. However, this genetic update of commercial farms needs to be done quickly, economically, practically, and safe from a sanitary point of view. In this context,...

Abstract

Traditional artificial insemination has been highly contributed in swine global industry development. However, in order to improve the productivity and the reproductive performance of pig farms, new techniques have been performed. Among them, post cervical or intrauterine insemination, deep...

Abstract

The present study was aimed to determine the effect of sodium hyaluronate (HA) on quality and fertilizing ability of boar semen stored for six days. The semen from 6 boars (30 ejaculates) was diluted in a control extender (Biosolwens Plus) and extenders R1, R2, R3 and R4 containing 0.25, 0.5, 1.0...

Abstract

Cryopreserved boar semen has been commercially available since 1975 but nowadays the use of frozen-thawed sperm in artificial insemination technologies represents around 1% of total inseminations. This limited use is mainly due to the poor reproductive output obtained with frozen-thawed sperm...

Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the correlation between semen quality and results of artificial insemination in pigs. Sperm mobility parameters were analyzed, using a computerised programe known as the CASA system. The semen samples were collected from Large White boars and were examined for...

Abstract

Infertility and subfertility account for huge economic losses in the animal industry; indeed, 50% of animal breeding failure is associated with male infertility. Approximately 70% of cattle and 90% of pig livestock are currently produced by artificial insemination. Therefore, breeding-male...

AbstractFull Text

The main goal of commercial pig production is to produce as much fattened pigs per sow per year as possible. Artificial insemination serves to enable maximum utilization of animal genetic potential. That is possible to achieve by applying adequate and controlled conditions of housing, care, feeding ...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the electroejaculation and artificial insemination in Diannan miniature boars using the Lane Pulsator IV. Rectum electroejaculation was performed with the following Lane Pulsator IV parameters: 4-5 levels of voltage in 6 anaesthetized boars and 1-5 s of...

Abstract

The present study was performed to investigate the number of either the spermatozoa or the embryos in the reproductive tracts of sows after unilateral, deep, intra uterine insemination (DIUI). Two experiments were conducted, 10 sows were used in experiment I and eight sows were used in experiment...
