Abstract

The aim of the research was to contribute towards improved pig reproductive performance in Uganda, through determining community boar stud semen quality as affected by boar traits and comparing the performance of single and double insemination. Semen ejaculates (n=36) from mature boars (3 Large...

Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the correlation between semen quality and results of artificial insemination in pigs. Sperm mobility parameters were analyzed, using a computerised programe known as the CASA system. The semen samples were collected from Large White boars and were examined for...

Abstract

The experiments involved 31 boars, including: 5 Duroc, 5 Hampshire and 7 Pietrain boars, as well as 9 Duroc × Pietrain and 5 Hampshire × Pietrain hybrids. Two series of measurements were performed at three-month intervals for each animal. Sexual activity of the boars was assessed by the time at...

AbstractFull Text

Semen from Large White and Pietrain boars was collected at 3 and 4 day intervals. Volume, percentages of live, immature and motile spermatozoa and tail abnormalities were evaluated in order to assess ejaculate quality. The number of insemination doses per ejaculate was calculated for each breed and ...

AbstractFull Text

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of semen purification and storage on sperm mitochondrial membrane potential (ΔΨm). Gel-free whole ejaculates were collected from five proven fertile Large White boars aged two to three years. Aliquots of fresh semen were split, diluted in one step with...

AbstractFull Text

Semen production from reproduction boars depends upon different factors as: age, breed, using way to natural mating or collecting, but also the environmental conditions. The present research have in view to establish how three influence factors as breed, age and collecting season could change the...

Abstract

Background: Semen extenders are used to create multiple insemination doses from a single ejaculate and contain buffers and nutrients suitable for storage of spermatozoa. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the survivability of boar sperm stored under room temperature in different extenders...

AbstractFull Text

The biological material was represented by 15 boars of Large White, Duroc and Landrace breed. Age of the boars was between 8 months and 31 months. Collecting frequency was reduced: one collecting followed by five days pause. At each collecting it was determined the volume of the ejaculation, the...

Abstract

Variability of semen production data has been analysed considering performances of 266 artificial insemination boars from Rouillé AI center, distributed into 6 breeds (Hyperprolific Large White, Large White, French Landrace, Piétrain, P76 and Piétrain-Large White crossbred). Three production traits ...

Abstract

A total of 182 boar ejaculates were investigated with regard to the effect of season, breed and age on the quality of boar sperm. Yorkshire, Landrace, Duroc, Hampshire and Pietrain purebred and F1 crossbred pigs were divided according to age into 12- 13-18-, 19-24- and 25-months-old. Ejaculates...
