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...

Abstract

Lactobacillus resides in the hen's gastrointestinal tract, vagina and cloaca. When fed to hens, Lactobacillus has improved egg weight, size and shell strength. However, data from our lab suggests Lactobacillus may be detrimental to semen and possibly fertility. Therefore, the objective of this...

Abstract

France is the only country that practices pedigree selection of guinea fowl for meat production. The increasing risk of line extinction for sanitary or breeding failure reasons makes clear the need for an efficient method of reproductive cell cryopreservation in this species. However, an efficient...

Abstract

Artificial insemination (AI) technology use in poultry production has enabled the rapid dissemination of genetic material from a small number of superior males to a high number of females. Excellent fertility in poultry can be obtained by AI compared to natural mating. Successful application of...

Abstract

The practice of artificial insemination is widely utilized in poultry; and this requires a broad use of semen storage techniques to prevent the reduction of fertilizing ability of stored semen. The antioxidant activity of palmitoleic acid with in vitro experiments has been shown. The present study...

Abstract

Liquid storage of avian spermatozoa is currently being employed in programs utilizing the artificial insemination to optimize the management of genetically superior males. It is mandatory to use efficient semen storage techniques in order to prevent the reduction of the fertilizing ability of...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to study the effects of egg yolk plasma (10%, 15% and 20%), soybean lecithin (0.5%, 1% and 1.5%) and whole egg yolk (WEY) (control) on post-thawed sperm quality, hatchability and fertility outcomes. In experiment 1, sperm motility, abnormalities, membrane integrity,...

Abstract

With avian sperm cryopreservation protocols, the most widely used cryoprotectants (CPAs) are the glycerol (GLY; in gradual freezing: in-straw freezing method), and the dimethylacetamide (DMA; in pellets by plunging into liquid nitrogen: in-pellet rapid freezing method). Use of both methods results...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of dietary n-3:n-6 fatty acid (FA) ratios and vitamin E (vitE) on the semen quality, FA composition, hormonal responses, and reproductive performance of aged roosters. Thirty-six Ross broiler breeder roosters were assigned to a 3×2 factorial...

Abstract

Glycerol is a least toxic and most effective cryoprotectant for cryopreservation of poultry semen, but due to its contraceptive properties removal of glycerol is usually needed prior to artificial insemination. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a small amphiphilic molecule used as penetrating...
