AbstractFull Text

Morphological characteristics of turkey Meleagris gallopavo semen were recorded and hatchability percentages of the artificially inseminated hens were assessed. To study the effect of natural mating on hatchability 15 (3♂, 12♀) M. gallopavo were randomly selected, were kept separately and were...

Abstract

Frozen-thawed rooster semen is not reliable for use in artificial insemination in commercial stocks. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) has been assessed for effectiveness as a cryoprotectant in the extender to improve the quality of frozen-thawed rooster semen. Although LDL has been evaluated in a few...

Abstract

A specific problem in goat semen preservation is the detrimental effect of seminal plasma on sperm viability in extenders containing yolk or milk. Thus, the use of chemically defined extenders will have obvious advantages. Although previous studies indicate that the initial pH of an extender is...

Abstract

The immxinisation of hens with semen (intravenous injection) or a semen + adjuvant emulsion (intramuscular injection) did not significantly lower egg fertility for 2-7 days after insemination compared with that in non-immunised controls, but 8-14 days after insemination fertility was significantly...

Abstract

Over a long period, White Leghorn (W.L.), Barred Plymouth Rock (B.P.R.) and crossbred hens were repeatedly inseminated with semen from W.L., B.P.R. and White Cornish (W.C.) ♂♂. Egg fertility declined as the period of artificial breeding increased, particularly with W.C. ♂♂. Sperm agglutinin titre...

Abstract

MOTILITY of avian spermatozoa after storage at 4-4° C. was studied using normal saline, egg yolk+citrate, amniotic fluid, albumen, and avian, bovine, rabbit and human serum as semen diluents. Avian and human serum were the best in maintaining motility. With 1 part semen to 7 parts avian or human...

Abstract

The previous published symposium dealt with those aspects of the hen's egg which affect its quality as a food product. This latest one deals exclusively with the egg's reproductive function, and, as such, is concerned with those factors both intrinsic and extrinsic to the egg which affect its...
