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

Competitive fertilization in turkeys was investigated; microsatellite genotyping was used to determine male parentage. Evidence was obtained that sperm mobility influences the reproductive performance of male turkeys. Sperm mobility is composed of several parameters including sperm motility....
