Abstract

Artificial insemination with cooled semen is routine in equids because of its good fertility rates and relatively low costs. In several donkey breeds, especially in restricted populations, the use of cooled semen could be seen as the best way of improving reproductive performance and avoiding...

Abstract

In this article the factors affecting semen quality, fertilizing capability, semen assessment, spermatozoa concentration in boars are discussed highlighting the reasons why some boars with good semen quality have very low reproductive performance, fertility and/or prolificacy when used at the farm...

AbstractFull Text

The off-breeding season for rams is a time-limiting factor for their use in scientific aims. This research was set upon two aims: (1) to acknowledge the differences of semen quality collected throughout the year, and (2) to investigate which of the two commonly used methods for semen collection (...

Abstract

Frozen-thawed boar sperm (FTS) has reduced motility and viability compared to cooled semen. Motility of FTS is related to in vitro and in vivo fertility, but this effect has not been determined in relation to the timing of ovulation. To test the effect of variable FTS motility in a multiple-AI...

Abstract

Success of artificial insemination in bovine industry depends upon quality of frozen-thawed semen. Therefore, proper analysis of the post-thaw semen can provide insights into the fertilizing capacity of the cryopreserved semen. Frozen-thawed semen of 14 cross-bred and 12 pure-bred bulls was...

Abstract

Semen samples collected in 2012 from 1785 boars belonging to five different breeds were recruited from the quality control laboratory of Magapor SL, Spain. These samples came from 43 boar studs and resulted from diluting the ejaculates in commercial semen extenders. Evaluation of the semen sample...

AbstractFull Text

Our study was conducted out of the breeding season (March, 2012). An experimental study was conducted to assess the external genitalia in rams, along with artificial collection of semen, using the electro ejaculation method by electrostimulation with an electroejaculator standardized for small...

AbstractFull Text

Enzyme system NADH-Tetrazolium Reductase can be used as a marker for the functional status of mitochondria. Its activity gives us information about the intracellular oxidation, and its quantitative characteristics are expressed by mean cytochemical coefficient (MCC). The aims of this study were to...

Abstract

This paper aimed at investigating the potential use of sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) to improve the routine screening of infertility of Holstein bulls. Cryopreserved sperm samples from 201 Holstein bulls provided by an AI center were used in the analyses of SDF at 0 (SDF_0) and 6 (SDF_6) h of...

Abstract

Semen quality parameters of infertile and fertile dogs were compared. Sperm concentration and semen motility parameters were measured by the Hamilton-Thorne Semen Analyser IVOS 12.3. The spermatozoal morphology and the percentage of live spermatozoa were examined microscopically. Forty-six dogs of...
