Abstract

Background: Cryopreservation of epididymal spermatozoa is important in cases in which it is not possible to collect semen using normal methods, as the sudden death of an animal or a catastrophic injury. However, the freezing and thawing processes cause stress to spermatozoa, including cold shock,...

Abstract

Thirty-six ejaculates (3 ejaculates/bull) of pure and crossbred Jersey bulls were used to compare sperm attributes of frozen thawed semen. The seminal attributes viz. semen volume, sperm concentration, post thaw motility and acrosome integrity were similar (p>0.05) between the breeds, whereas,...

Abstract

The study was undertaken to know the characteristics of various attributes of ejaculates collected from 6 elite pure Tharparkar bulls using artificial vagina in fresh and cryopreserved semen. The mean values for fresh seminal parameters, viz. seminal volume (ml), mass motility (0-5 scale), sperm...

AbstractFull Text

This experiment was conducted to determine the physical and ultra-structural attributes of fresh bull semen and assess their potential use for freezing and AI. A total of 40 semen samples collected from 4 mature bulls (10 samples per bull) were analyzed. The semen samples were examined for colour,...

Abstract

The activity of sperm cells after thawing depends on the ratio of reactive oxidant species and antioxidant system. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of catalase (alone or combined with tryptophan as antioxidants) added to the extender on the livability of cryopreserved cattle...
