Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is the single most important assisted reproductive technique devised to facilitate the genetic improvement of livestock. In the swine industry, it has broadly replaced natural service over the last number of decades which has been made possible by the high pregnancy...

Abstract

The reproduction of swinish of genetic high value, constitutes a fundamental link in the artificial insemination program in Cuba, where the evaluation of the seminal quality of sires in the Center of Artificial insemination Granma, constitutes the objective of the work. They were studied an...

Abstract

Boar stations raise only entire male pigs for selection as reproductive boars, but the majority of them will fail the selection process, ending at slaughter with a high risk of boar tainted meat. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a single dose of Improvac given to 16-week old boars...

Abstract

The purposes of this study were to evaluate the effect of both of boar and frozen boar semen concentration on the frozen-thaw sperm viability. The freeze boar semen were produced using boars from Changhua Animal Propagation Station and than thaw and insemination. The conception rate and litter size ...

Abstract

The economic impact of selection for semen traits on pig production systems and potential interaction with artificial insemination (AI) technique and semen dose remains partially understood. The objectives of this study were to compare the financial indicators (gross return, net profit, cost) in a...

AbstractFull Text

This study was designed to determine the degree and type of bacterial contamination in boar semen (79 ejaculates from Large White and Landrace boars) and its consequences for sperm quality during storage (27 extended semen samples, 16°C for five days) under practical conditions of artificial ...

AbstractFull Text

Maintaining a successful pig artificial insemination programme depends on a number of factors, including evaluation of semen characteristics. This study compared the efficacy of different extenders on the sperm motility of Kolbroek semen during short term storage at 4°C and 25°C. Semen was...

Abstract

The selection of morphologically normal spermatozoa is critical to obtain high breeding performances in boar breeding farms and artificial insemination (AI) centers. Parameters for the selection of semen mainly include total sperm motility, concentration, and morphology. However, these primary...

Abstract

Some pig farms that aim for selection, production and marketing of breeding pigs with high genetic merit, periodically use artificial insemination (AI) for genetic infusion. To counteract the process of inbreeding and crossbreeding, these farms regularly import semen from pure breeds. This study...
