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

Glycerol is a least toxic and most effective cryoprotectant for cryopreservation of poultry semen, but due to its contraceptive properties removal of glycerol is usually needed prior to artificial insemination. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a small amphiphilic molecule used as penetrating...

Abstract

The study aimed to evaluate the reproductive traits in poultry breeder with different weight ranges of two semi-heavy lineages. The experimental method was completely randomized design in factorial arrangement (3×2) with two factors: reproductive methods (artificial insemination and natural mating) ...

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 (...

Abstract

The population of red jungle fowl is declining and needs special attention for its conservation with suitable approaches. For ex situ in vitro conservation of Indian red jungle fowl, establishment of semen cryobank is an appropriate option, for which an extender with adequate retrieval capacity for ...

Abstract

Objective: This study was conducted to compare morphological defects, viability, motility (MOT), fertility (F), and hatchability (H) in four Korean native chicken breeds (KNCBs), and to evaluate whether defective segments of spermatozoa are associated with MOT, F, and H. Methods: Four KNCBs,...

Abstract

Semen from 12 sexually active ♂♂, 12 ♂♂ of moderate sexual activity and 12 passive ♂♂ was used to inseminate 3 groups, each of 40 ♀♀, the groups of ♂♂ being rotated around the groups of ♀♀, with 7 days between each rotation. The daily mating frequency of the 3 groups of ♂♂ had averaged 15.5, 8.1...

Abstract

THE semen is injected by a hypodermic syringe penetrating the skin in the ovarian region to a depth of 6-8 cm. depending on the size and conformation of the bird. An adequate dose is 0.05-0.l cm.3, which may be discharged in one place or spread over the area by moving the needle slightly. The risk...

Abstract

Semen was collected from 72 cocks during the year Oct. 1948-Sep. 1949. The cock spermatozoon consists of a head, which is needle-shaped, 10 µ long and 1 µ in diameter, and with an acrosome at the tip, a middle piece 5 µ long, and a tail 100 µ long. The av. volume per ejaculate was 0.76 ml. ; it...

Abstract

This investigation reports the results obtained from artificial insemination of 257 hens with mixed semen from 30 cocks. The semen was either given undiluted or diluted with Ringer solution; 30% semen gave better results than undiluted semen, and 10% semen gave as good results as undiluted semen....
