Abstract

Sensitivity of rooster semen to stressful condition of cooling restricts the semen storage in commercial flocks for artificial insemination. This study was accomplished to investigate the effect of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) addition to the Lake extender during chilled-storage on the parameters of sperm...

Abstract

Rooster sperm is sensitive to cooling, which restricts procedures to store sperms for extended periods of time for artificial insemination of commercial flocks. This study was conducted to evaluate the suitability of adding L-carnitine (LC) to chilled-storage of rooster sperm and its effects on...

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

This study explored the influence of dilution and low-temperature preservation on chicken semen quality and fertility, aiming at optimizing the short-term preservation conditions for the chicken semen. The semen samples collected from 30 Beijing-You chickens were mixed gently and divided into 4...

Abstract

Rooster semen cryopreservation is not efficient for artificial insemination in breeder flocks. l-Carnitine (LC) has been evaluated for effectiveness in cryopreservation media on the characteristics of rooster sperm after freeze-thawing. Motility characteristics, membrane functionality, abnormal...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the new rooster semen freezing extender which is containing a low level of glycerol and soybean lecithin as an alternative protective agent in the extender. The aim of the first experiment was to evaluate a new extender for freeze-thawing rooster semen...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate factors related to hatching ability of Betong chicken. The 30-week-old Betong chicken was divided into 2 groups each of 10 dam and 4 sires with the same age was pooled semen. The sperm number using in artificial insemination were diluted 100 million...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess the effect of different diluent type and storage time on the quality of rooster insemination doses in terms of the spermatozoa motility and apoptosis (in vitro) and spermatozoa fertility potential (in vivo). The motility parameters were significantly (P<0.001) higher in the spermatozoa diluted in saline solution than those diluted in avian diluent at each storage time (0.5, 1 and 2 hours). The proportion of apoptotic spermatozoa was significantly (P<0.05) higher in the semen samples diluted in the avian diluent in comparison to the semen samples diluted in the saline solution after 1 hour of storage. The proportion of dead spermatozoa was significantly (P<0.05) higher in avian diluent in comparison to the semen samples diluted in the saline solution after 2 hours of storage. The fertility of spermatozoa diluted in the avian diluent significantly (P<0.01) decreased 1 hour after the ejaculate collection. In conclusion, saline solution maintained better quality of rooster spermatozoa in terms of their motility values and the proportion of apoptotic and dead cells (...

AbstractFull Text

The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of linolenic acid on the quality of rooster semen stored at 4°C. Semen was collected from ten roosters twice a week. Good quality ejaculates were pooled and then diluted, the semen was enriched with 0 (control), 40 (L40), 80 (L80) and 160 (L160) ...
