Abstract

The length of the distal part of the internal reproductive tract seems to be related to the length and capacity of uterine horns, which is the most important anatomical property influencing litter size in sows. The aim of this study was to evaluate variation in vagina-cervix length (VCL) in gilts...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate factors related to hatching ability of Betong chicken. The 30-week-old Betong chicken was divided into 2 groups each of 10 dam and 4 sires with the same age was pooled semen. The sperm number using in artificial insemination were diluted 100 million...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the extender basis as (Tris egg yolk) and commercial extender (ContinentalTM Extender) in frozen bovine semen on sperm quality. The semen samples were divided into 2 groups. Group 1 was cryopreserved in extender basis (Tris egg yolk) and group 2 was...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare number and size of follicles and steroid hormone concentrations between natural cycling and synchronized ovulation lactating dairy cows. Postpartum crossbred Holstein-Friesian (HF) lactating dairy cows (≥87.5% HF) (n=8), with the body condition score of...

Abstract

Benefits of genomic selection (GS) in livestock breeding operations are well known particularly where traits are sex-limited, hard to measure, have a low heritability and/or measured later in life. Sheep and beef breeders have a higher cost:benefit ratio for GS compared to dairy. Therefore,...

Abstract

Female reproductive technologies such as multiple ovulation and embryo transfer (MOET) and juvenile in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (JIVET) have been shown to accelerate genetic gain by increasing selection intensity and decreasing generation interval. Genomic selection (GS) increases...

Abstract

Artificial insemination protocols depend on efficient behavioral estrus detection and insemination time in Angora goat. Therefore, we aim to determine the accuracy of an estrus scoring system in Angora goats with different PMSG doses during the breeding season. Does (n: 260) were randomly divided...
