Abstract

Use of computer-assisted sperm analyzers (CASAs) to evaluate sperm fertilizing ability has great importance for the artificial insemination industry. For motility evaluation, different CASA systems and diluents are being used. These assays are poor in predicting sperm fertility, because only the...

Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the effect of receiving magnetic water (3600 Gauss) on antioxidant, immunity status, semen production and preservation, and sperm fertilizing ability of APRI bucks. Twenty adult bucks were divided into two groups, 10 in each, receiving natural water (NW, control) or...

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

Optimization of artificial insemination (AI) for pig production and evaluation of the fertilizing capacity of boar semen are highly related. Field studies have demonstrated significant variation in semen quality and fertility. The semen quality of boars is primarily affected by breed and season. AI ...

Abstract

Our objectives were to ascertain the comparison of Tris egg yolk-based, Triladyl® and Optixell® extender on postthaw quality, CASA parameters and in vivo fertility of Nili Ravi buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) bull spermatozoa. Semen samples (n=35) from five bulls were diluted in Tris egg yolk-based,...

Abstract

Sperm survival depending upon integral membranes and function is imperative for fertilization. This study was designed to augment survival of buffalo spermatozoa using alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and cholesterol-loaded cyclodextrin (CLC) during cryopreservation. Semen was frozen using 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2 ...

Abstract

Fertilization involves a complex process and requires many sperm attributes for its success. There is great variation in the semen of different bulls and batch, which causes an oscillation in fertility potential. The use in TAI of semen batch with reduced fertility potential causes a great impact...

Abstract

The epididymis is a complex organ where spermatozoa acquire motility and ability to fertilize the egg. Epididymal maturation lasts 1 or 2 weeks and exposes the immature spermatozoa to a sequentially modified milieu, promoting intense interactions with secretions by the epididymal epithelium. Sperm...

AbstractFull Text

Background: One of the challenges faced by equine breeders is ensuring delivery of good quality semen doses for artificial insemination when the mare is due to ovulate. Single Layer Centrifugation (SLC) has been shown to select morphologically normal spermatozoa with intact chromatin and good...

Abstract

Any event that makes semen collection or mating impossible, such as death, castration, or injury, may terminate a stallion's breeding career. Fortunately, stallion sperm which are capable of fertilization can be harvested from the epididymis, and frozen for future use. However, the fertility of...
