Abstract

The pioneering work of Quinn and Burrows in the late 1930s led to the successful artificial insemination (AI) programmes in domestic poultry. A variety of species specific modifications to the Quinn and Burrows massage technique made AI possible in nondomestic birds. Massage semen collection and ...

Abstract

Methods of semen collection and artificial insemination (AI) in poultry, requirement for diluents, methods of liquid and frozen storage of avian semen and evaluation of spermatozoa after storage for fertilizing ability are reviewed. Frozen storage of semen from non-domestic birds is also briefly...

Abstract

Campylobacter and Salmonella are the most commonly reported pathogens causing foodborne illness in the United States. In turkeys, the potential that semen used for artificial insemination is contaminated with these foodborne pathogens has not been investigated. Because semen on turkey farms is...

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

Because nearly all the turkeys produced in the United States are the result of artificial insemination (AI), it is important to increase the efficiency of this labour-intensive practice. A semen evaluation test predictive of fertility would be extremely beneficial. Studies have shown that sperm...

Abstract

Campylobacter is one of the most commonly reported bacterial causes of human foodborne infections in the United States. Recent evidence has demonstrated that Campylobacter is present in poultry semen and may contribute to the vertical transmission between the breeder hen and offspring. As ...

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....

Abstract

In 3 trials, ejaculates were collected from a total of 26 Large White breeder toms once a week for 3 weeks and samples were pooled. 36 turkey hens were artificially inseminated with the pooled semen and eggs were collected over 4 weeks. Paternity of hatched poults was determined by DNA...

Abstract

Counting the number of holes in the perivitelline layer surrounding the germinal disc of freshly laid eggs has been used as a means of assessing sperm attachment, their ability to undergo an acrosome reaction and penetration of the ovum. This study compared the number of holes in the perivitelline...

Abstract

A partly purified heat-soluble protein extract was isolated from dry, mature wheat seed embryos and added to semen diluent. Female turkeys were inseminated with fresh semen or semen stored for 24 h at 5°C and fertility and hatchability data were collected. Addition of 10% wheat protein extract to...
