Abstract

Our objectives were to evaluate: (1) the efficacy of the Sperm Mobility Test on commercial turkey farms, and (2) the influence of sperm mobility phenotype on fertility when insemination parameters are varied. In research flocks, differences in sperm mobility among toms are predictive of fertility....

Abstract

We tested the capacity of the AviMate sperm quality analyzer to predict sperm mobility phenotype. A preliminary experiment was performed to determine a sperm concentration that afforded maximal sperm quality index (SQI) values with sperm from males with high sperm mobility. In order to facilitate...

Abstract

Semen donors were selected from a population of 100 males, based on the extent to which spermatozoa penetrated 6% (wt/vol) Accudenz® from an overlay of diluted semen. Ejaculates were obtained weekly from semen donors with average or high sperm motility (5 donors per phenotype), the ejaculates were...

Abstract

Duration of fertility following intravaginal and intramagnal insemination of hens with viable spermatozoa from subfertile Delaware roosters was compared with that obtained with spermatozoa from fertile Leghorn and subfertile Wyandotte roosters. In contrast to results with Leghorn and Wyandotte...
