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

Semen cryopreservation is associated with low productivity results. This study aimed to test the Coconut Water Powder (ACP®-103) as a resuspension diluent after thawing semen, also evaluate sperm quality during the cooling curve until thawing of the semen. For this, the semen was collected from 15...

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 present study was aimed to determine the effect of sodium hyaluronate (HA) on quality and fertilizing ability of boar semen stored for six days. The semen from 6 boars (30 ejaculates) was diluted in a control extender (Biosolwens Plus) and extenders R1, R2, R3 and R4 containing 0.25, 0.5, 1.0...

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...
