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...

Abstract

The study reveals that colour of neat semen in all the breeds was white creamy and it was opaque when observed in collecting tubes. Statistical analysis of the data showed highly significant (P<0.01) differences in volume of pooled semen between breeds. Bikaneri rams had significantly higher volume of semen than Merino and Crossbreed rams, the volume of the later two were statistically similar. The gross motility of spermatozoa in neat pooled semen of Merino, Crossbreed and Bikaneri rams showed non significant difference between breeds. The sperm concentration (×109/ml) of neat pooled semen of Merino, crossbreed and Bikaneri rams was 3.45±0.08, 3.57±0.07 and 3.55±0.09...
