Abstract

In order to introduce artificial insemination (AI) for genetic and offspring improvement in turkey population, viable sperm concentration (VSC) was used to choose the breeding males. In addition, technological definitions were established as the timetable frequency, as well as the sperm dose and...

Abstract

20 female and 10 male White Peking ducks, kept on floors with water ponds and fed concentrates at the rate of 250 g/day per bird, were used. Three trials were carried out in order to evaluate the effects of insemination time and frequency and semen dose on the fertility of females. In the first...

Abstract

40 pooled samples of semen from 10 fowls were diluted in 2 experimental diluents or a control diluent (BPSE), each sample was stored at 4°-8°C for 6 h. Laboratory measurements of semen traits and insemination studies showed that a diluent with fructose, sodium citrate and EDTA gave the best results.

Abstract

At 26-32 weeks of age, semen production and quality were evaluated in 1331 White Leghorn cocks in 2 flocks in Cuba. Of 678 and 653 cocks in the 2 flocks, 445 and 410 respectively were suitable for AI, 81 and 66 were doubtful and 152 and 177 were not suitable. In the 2 flocks, the overall average...

Abstract

For 5814 geese in a flock in Cuba, inseminated with semen from 419 ganders in 1995 and 1996, fertility of 62 720 and 68 654 eggs respectively averaged 94.3 and 93.5% vs. 95.5 and 96.8% for 81 925 and 70 200 eggs from 5979 hens inseminated with semen from 436 cocks in a 2nd flock, and egg...

Abstract

From 28 to 34 weeks of age, hens (288 per group) were inseminated at intervals of 7 or 5 days with a semen dose containing 150±20 × 106 spermatozoa. For 3240 and 3960 incubated eggs from hens in the 2 groups respectively, egg fertility averaged 98.6 and 98.5% and egg hatchability was 78.7 and...

Abstract

1118 ejaculates from 400 turkeys in Cuba were evaluated, of which 248 were deemed suitable for AI. Data are presented in 4 tables for ejaculate volume, semen colour and consistency, sperm concentration and sperm motility. For 5000 hens inseminated with semen from 200 ♂♂, egg fertility averaged...

Abstract

From 28 to 34 days of age, 576 hens were inseminated at 7-day intervals with a semen dose containing (× 106) 200±20 or 150±20 spermatozoa. For 4140 and 3240 eggs resp. from hens in the 2 groups, the av. fertility was 97.3 and 98.6%, and hatchability 77.5 and 78.7%, the differences between the...

Abstract

For 2203 eggs from 96 hens inseminated with a semen dose containing 200 × 106 spermatozoa at 4-day intervals, fertility and hatchability averaged 91.3 and 74.8% respectively vs. 91.6 and 75.8% for 2128 eggs from 96 hens inseminated with 150 × 106 spermatozoa at 7-day intervals. The differences...

Abstract

From 30 wk of age, turkey hens of heavy and light strains were inseminated weekly with 0.025, 0.045 or 0.1 ml of diluted semen containing 80, 180 or 300 × 106 live spermatozoa resp. There were no significant differences between hens in egg fertility (91.6-92.5%) or egg hatchability (59.5-64.0%).
