Abstract

The cell membrane of ram spermatozoa is more sensitive to the freezing process than in other species due to its composition. As a result, the quality and viability of frozen thawed ram spermatozoa are often poor, which together with the specific structure of the ewe's cervix are the main reasons...

AbstractFull Text

The objectives of this study were to verify the time during which viable ovine spermatozoa could be recovered from the cauda epididymis kept at ambient temperature (18-25°C). Sperm collected in an artificial vagina (AV) were used as control. Spermatozoa samples were collected with an AV and from...

Abstract

The use of frozen semen for artificial insemination is the main approach utilised for the genetic improvement of most domesticated species. The advantages include lower transportation costs, continuous availability of semen, fewer occurrences of sexually transmitted diseases and the incorporation...

Abstract

Cockerel semen is sensitive to cooling, which limits chilled storage of semen for more than 24 h. Results of artificial insemination with cold-stored semen are not desirable. This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary fish oil and vitamin E (vitE) for cold-storage of rooster semen...

Abstract

The conservation of boar semen at lower temperatures might contribute to the further expansion of artificial insemination in this species. Egg yolk cryoprotectant properties have already been extensively tested on sperm cryopreservation of several species. This study aimed to test different...

Abstract

The use of bithermic dilution protocols is increasing in artificial insemination centres; therefore, it is necessary to guarantee that the quality of insemination doses remain the same when compared to isothermic dilution protocols. Four ejaculates from each of 19 crossbreed PIC® boars were...

Abstract

Several selection techniques are available for processing spermatozoa. Apart from sperm washing to remove seminal plasma, only "swim-up" and colloid centrifugation have been used to any extent to prepare spermatozoa for in vitro fertilization, and only colloid centrifugation has been used to...
