Abstract

Cooled ram sperm stored for prolonged intervals is not suitable for artificial insemination due to sperm damage. However, the addition of gelatin to rabbit and pig semen protected sperm viability during prolonged storage. The objective was to evaluate effects on sperm quality by adding gelatin to...

Abstract

In rabbit farms, artificial insemination is usually undertaken using semen preserved around 18°C. However, increased reactive oxygen species levels during preservation produce sperm dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of adding superoxide dismutase (SOD) antioxidant mimics (Tempo and...

Abstract

On commercial farms, rabbit does are subjected to a reproductive rhythm that does not account for their welfare or physiology, leading to reduced longevity and consequently high annual replacement. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends limited and infrequent use of hormone...

Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the effect of receiving magnetic water (3600 Gauss) on antioxidant, immunity status, semen production and preservation, and sperm fertilizing ability of APRI bucks. Twenty adult bucks were divided into two groups, 10 in each, receiving natural water (NW, control) or...

Abstract

We aimed at the evaluating the occurrence of macrophages in rabbit semen and finding possible relationship between macrophage concentration and spermatozoa quality. The concentration of macrophages in semen samples from broiler rabbit males of lines M91 and P91 (n=30) without overt evidence of...

AbstractFull Text

In mammals, the sex ratio under natural conditions is 50% female and 50% male. However, this ratio can be altered by some methods. The application of warmth (42°C) to the scrotum has an effect on the functioning of spermatozoa within the epididymis and modifies the sex ratio of offspring obtained...

Abstract

The in vitro evaluation of spermatological parameters is of great importance in the validation of semen samples to be used in artificial insemination. This study was aimed at evaluating the effect of 5% egg yolk plasma from 5 Nigerian domesticated avian species as a component of semen extender in...

Abstract

Two experiments were carried out to examine in vitro quality and in vivo fertility of rabbit semen diluted in ultra-high temperature (UHT) skim milk. In the first experiment, pooled ejaculates of 10 adult rabbits were divided in three aliquots. Each aliquot was diluted in saline solution, TrisC or...
