Abstract

The first successful artificial insemination in cats was described 40 years ago. However, the insemination in cats is at present not as commonly performed in daily veterinary practice as the insemination in dogs due to the practical difficulties in collecting a sperm sample from the tomcat, the...

Abstract

The transport and artificial insemination of chilled (4°C) and cryopreserved (-196°C) dog semen have gained increasing interest worldwide and have become very popular among dog breeders. Whereas cryopreservation of dog sperm is a complicated and time consuming procedure, which is almost exclusively ...

Abstract

In the present study, the practice of semen examination and semen processing in Belgian porcine artificial insemination (AI) centres was evaluated by means of a written questionnaire. The questionnaire was sent to 50 AI centres and 38 filled it in and returned it (response rate 76%). The size of...

Abstract

Reliable estimates of boar fertility potential from semen evaluation could be a valuable tool for boar selection. The aim of this study was to investigate the morphology and the detailed motility parameters of diluted boar semen and to relate these to their predictive value concerning conception...

Abstract

Subjective microscopic sperm motility results have recently been demonstrated to differ between Holstein-Friesian (HF) and Belgian Blue (BB) bulls. However, such assessments are rather imprecise. In the present study, sperm motility was assessed objectively by means of the Hamilton Thorne CEROS...

Abstract

In this study, the pH-rise during storage of extended porcine semen was examined. This pH-rise was found to be caused by CO2-loss from the buffering system in the extender and was more pronounced with increasing air volume in the recipient. An influence on sperm motility parameters was observed...
