Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is widely used in farm animals for efficient utilization of superior males. However, AI is not being used in camels due to various difficulties involved in the process. In an attempt to develop the technology in camels, the present study was carried out to assess the...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) in domestic animals is an important tool to maximise the use of genetically superior males and thereby insure rapid genetic progress. However, the application of AI in camelids has been hindered by the difficulties involved in collecting, as well as handling the semen...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is an important technique in all domestic species to ensure rapid genetic progress. The use of AI has been reported in camelids although insemination trials are rare. This could be because of the difficulties involved in collecting as well as handling the semen due to...

AbstractFull Text

Female dromedary camel are seasonal breeders and induced ovulators therefore the follicular wave pattern differs from that of other domestic animals and notably it is composed of recruitment phase, growth phase, mature phase and regression phase. Ultrasonography allows a more clear determination of ...

Abstract

Maternal recognition of pregnancy (MRP) and implantation involve appropriate interactions between the elongating conceptus and the receptive endometrium that will condition development of the feto-placental unit to term. Molecular mechanisms that take place at the conceptus-endometrium interface...

Abstract

Nerve growth factor-β (NGF) has been identified in the seminal plasma of domestic mammals and is important for ovulation induction in camelids. While previously thought to play a negligible role in spontaneous ovulators, recent studies have suggested that it may have a luteotrophic effect in...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) is one of the most widely used reproductive technologies, and there is considerably interest in commercializing this technology in camels. Storage of semen extender frozen (at -20°C) is of considerable interest to scientists working with camels, as transportation of...

Abstract

This book briefly reviews the history of equine embryo transfer, covering in clinically practical terms the techniques, equipment, and management protocols currently in use. Embryo transfer has become a big business, especially for breeding racing stock (horses and camels), and is therefore a very...
