AbstractFull Text

The study was carried out on 1913 ejaculates collected from 51 Landrace boars. The ejaculates were collected manually. The study included all ejaculates collected by one artificial insemination station over a span of 12 consecutive months. The ejaculates were subjected to the standard analysis...

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

Predicting male fertility is extremely important for artificial insemination and profitable farm management. Conventional semen assessment together with computer-assisted sperm analysis is widely used to predict male fertility under field conditions. However, the clinical validation and sensitivity ...

Abstract

The flagellar beating of a spermatozoa's axoneme is caused by the varying activation and inactivation of dynein molecules. Dynein, axonemal, light chain 4 (DNAL4) is a functional candidate gene for sperm motility as it encodes a small subunit of the dyneins. We resequenced the porcine DNAL4 using...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Cryopreserved semen is useful for animal breeding via artificial insemination (AI); however, the use of frozen-thawed boar sperm is limited due to cryodamage. OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to improve post-thaw motility of boar semen by supplementing the thawing medium with a...

Abstract

There were used comparatively two Cuban formulae of swine semen diluent. To do so there were used 2 600 F1 sows, to the dam crossing Yorkshire x Landrace. Half of them (1 300) were used in every treatment. The sows got inseminated by using semen from CC21 boars. The economic analysis was carried...
