Abstract

Commercial doses of frozen bull semen for artificial insemination may have a certain percentage of morphological defects, despite being subject to prior selection. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of morphological abnormalities in commercial doses (n=55, r=2) of dairy and...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate the freezing pretability of semen collected from 38 bucks Alpine and Saanen breeds, imported from Germany (2005). For this reason semen was frozen in Tris and Natrium citrate extenders, besides seminal plasma, using the rapid freezing methodin liquid nitrogen....

AbstractFull Text

The present study was undertaken to investigate the effects of freezing on sperm velocity in four different age groups (young: <1 year; mature: e≤1.0-2.5 years; old: e≤2.5-4.5 years and very old: e≤4.5 years) of Jermasia buck. Tris Citric Acid Egg Yolk Extender (TCAYE) was added to semen samples and cryopreserved using a programmable freezer prior to plunging into liquid nitrogen (-196°C). The fresh extended and frozen-thawed semen were subjected to computer automated semen analyzer (CASA) for sperm velocity evaluation. Fresh extended sperm in mature age group showed significantly highest values for average path velocity (VAP) 76.73±1.24 µm/s, straight line velocity (VSL) 55.30±1.05 µm/s, curvilinear velocity (VCL) 144.31±2.38 µm/s, amplitude of lateral head displacement (ALH) 6.59±0.10 µm and beat cross frequency (BCF) 39.59±0.36 Hz as compared to young, old and very old age groups of buck (P<0.05). Significantly (P<0.05) higher values for VAP, VSL, VCL and ALH were observed in fresh as compared to frozen-thawed sperm in all age groups of buck. Thus, age of bucks should be considered as one of the factors that contribute to better sperm velocity which might affect fertilizability of the sperm. Optimizing the freezing technique is also essential in order to obtain satisfactory results after artificial insemination.
