Abstract

The ability to produce viable progeny is a complex trait, involving both male and female components. In poultry, mating ratios are usually 1 male to 6 to 12 females. Consequently, the impact of male reproductive failure is much greater than that for a female. In this study, the genetic...

Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of D-Aspartic acid (D-Asp) on post-thawed sperm quality, fertility and hatchability outcomes in male broiler breeders. Twenty 55-week-old roosters were selected and equally split into four groups (n=5 rooster/group). Different daily D-Asp doses...

Abstract

Effects of breed and lay number on seminal characteristics as well as fertility and hatchability of eggs collected from caged geese by assigned mating between ganders and dams with artificial insemination were investigated. In trail 1, a total of 56 ganders and 128 dams on the first lay with...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to compare the effectiveness of different extenders conventionally used for semen cryopreservation to maintain the viability and fertility of cooled bull semen. In Experiment 1, sperm samples obtained from 20 Nellore bulls were preserved at 5°C for 48 h using two...

Abstract

Six lots each consisting of 9 Broad Breasted Bronze turkey hens were artificially inseminated during the 1950 breeding season. In the first 2 lots semen was undiluted; in the other 4, a synthetic diluent containing 60 mg. % fructose was used at 0, 24, 48 and 72 hrs. after collection. Mean hatch of...
