Abstract

The first successful artificial insemination (AI) in a rhinoceros was reported in 2007 using fresh semen. Following that success, we decided to evaluate the possibility of using frozen-thawed semen for artificial insemination. Semen, collected from a 35-36 year old Southern white rhinoceros (...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) continues to expand in the swine industry. The technique itself has been improving and advances continue to be developed, although the implementation of these advances at commercial level is not always quick. Some of the advances described are not new but their recent...

Abstract

The results of 93 inseminations in 60 mares inseminated in 1998 were examined. All mares received a single insemination at the time of detection of ovulation; the interval from ovulation to insemination did not exceed 12 h. Most semen was supplied in 0.5 ml straws with 4-12 straws constituting a...

Abstract

In the period 1996-2006 two specific sperm defects, the knobbed acrosome (KA) defect and the immotile short-tail sperm (ISTS) defect, showed a strong negative association with fertility in Finnish breeding boars. In this study, we examined the incidence of these two sperm defects in two pig breeds, ...

Abstract

This paper reports on the results of analysis of the breeding records of a large number of mares bred with frozen semen in six countries (Canada, Chile, England, Finland, France and US) and describes the factors that affected the pregnancy rates of the mares. This multi-centre study is the first of ...

Abstract

Mares were inseminated with motile spermatozoa suspended in 30-150 µl Tyrode's medium directly onto the uterotubal papilla at the anterior tip of the uterine horn, ipsilateral to the ovary containing a dominant preovulatory follicle of ≥35 mm in diameter, by means of a fine gamete intrafallopian...

Abstract

The average percentages of sperm with intact acrosomes in 8 batches of frozen-thawed semen from each of 17 bulls were compared with the non-return rates to artificial insemination by these bulls achieved over 3 years. Despite the fact that the bulls could be categorized into 3 statistically...

Abstract

For turkey hens inseminated with semen in which the incidence of sperm abnormalities was <10, 10-20 and >20%, egg fertility averaged 89.9, 89.2 and 81.0% respectively, and egg hatchability 76.2, 74.2 and 60.6%. In a 2nd trial, using semen from non-selected control ♂♂ and from selected ♂♂ with ...

Abstract

Semen from Rhode Island Red ♂♂ was used to inseminate 20 white-egg females. The vitelline membrane of eggs laid 2-21 days after a single insemination were examined for spermatozoa. The decline in number of spermatozoa in the vitelline membrane with increasing interval after insemination was...

Abstract

Bovine spermatozoa were microencapsulated in membranes of poly-smallcap˜L-lysine, polyarginine, polyvinylamine and protamine sulphate. Successful encapsulation was achieved for capsules of 0.75 to 1.5 mm, and sperm concentrations of 45 ×106 to 180 ×106 ml. Successful buffers were Cornell University ...
