Abstract

The first semen production of 29 young genomic Holstein bulls was analyzed in a continuous spermatological screening. Bulls were housed under identical conditions at the RBB AI stud in Brandenburg, Germany. With most of the bulls a production of high quality frozen semen was possible from an age of ...

Abstract

Thirty-six ejaculates (3 ejaculates/bull) of pure and crossbred Jersey bulls were used to compare sperm attributes of frozen thawed semen. The seminal attributes viz. semen volume, sperm concentration, post thaw motility and acrosome integrity were similar (p>0.05) between the breeds, whereas,...

AbstractFull Text

Enzyme system NADH-Tetrazolium Reductase can be used as a marker for the functional status of mitochondria. Its activity gives us information about the intracellular oxidation, and its quantitative characteristics are expressed by mean cytochemical coefficient (MCC). The aims of this study were to...

Abstract

Cryopreservation induces sublethal damage to the spermatozoa, which leads to their reduced fertile life. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of taurine, hypotaurine and trehalose as antioxidants on the function of the freezing-thawed sperm in Korean Jeju Black Bull. The semen...

AbstractFull Text

The deterioration of the sperm membrane and acrosome integrity as a method for predicting fertility in bulls was evaluated. Four bulls (2 Holstein and 2 Brown Swiss) from the National Bank of Semen, Lima-Peru were used. Acrosome integrity, sperm membrane integrity, motility, live sperm cells,...

Abstract

Success of artificial insemination in bovine industry depends upon quality of frozen-thawed semen. Therefore, proper analysis of the post-thaw semen can provide insights into the fertilizing capacity of the cryopreserved semen. Frozen-thawed semen of 14 cross-bred and 12 pure-bred bulls was...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to compare the motile sperm subpopulational structure in fresh and frozen-thawed semen from dairy (Holstein, n=9) and beef bulls (Asturiana de los Valles, n=10) which were known to have different field fertility (90 day nonreturn rates: 57.0 vs. 67.6%). The overall sperm...
