Abstract

The aim of the present study was the establishment of an effective protocol for cryopreservation of psittacine semen. Therefore, pooled semen samples of 30 cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus) were diluted with modified Lake diluent (1:4), partitioned into four equal parts. Three portions were mixed...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the effect of storage temperature, nitrogen (N2) gassing and sperm concentration on in vitro characteristics and calving rate (CR) following artificial insemination (AI) of liquid bull semen stored in INRA96. In Experiment 1 the effect of liquid bull semen...

Abstract

Cooled ram sperm stored for prolonged intervals is not suitable for artificial insemination due to sperm damage. However, the addition of gelatin to rabbit and pig semen protected sperm viability during prolonged storage. The objective was to evaluate effects on sperm quality by adding gelatin to...

Abstract

In rabbit farms, artificial insemination is usually undertaken using semen preserved around 18°C. However, increased reactive oxygen species levels during preservation produce sperm dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of adding superoxide dismutase (SOD) antioxidant mimics (Tempo and...

Abstract

Diluents using components of plant origin have been developed as an alternative to animal based extenders for the dilution of bull semen, however, it is unclear if use of these diluents results in in vivo fertility rates similar to those that occur with use of traditional egg yolk-based diluents....

Abstract

The aim of the present study was the investigation of stallion epididymal sperm frozen with seminal plasma within the same straw separated by an air bubble before freezing. We hypothesized that mixing both components after thawing improves the sperm quality compared with conventionally...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) with cryopreserved semen has a pivotal role in wider dissemination of germplasm of elite livestock and also for conservation of various endangered species. Cryopreservation allows storage of semen for a prolonged period of time and facilitates greater exchange of...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...

Abstract

The dilution of semen is a very important initial process for semen processing and evaluation, storage and preservation in vitro and efficient artificial insemination. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of two synthetic diluents (OS1 and OS2) on ostrich sperm motility parameters during ...

Abstract

Increasing use of fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI) in beef cattle production has presented an opportunity for the use of fresh or chilled semen as an alternative to standard cryopreserved semen. The objective of this study was to examine in vitro sperm function and pregnancy rate of...
