Abstract

This study evaluated the efficiency of a post-thaw diluent on the conception rate of timed artificial insemination (TAI), on the in vitro embryo production (IVEP), the fertilization rate and the computerized semen analysis. In the execution of all the techniques, semen straws of a single bull with...

Abstract

In rabbit farms, artificial insemination is usually undertaken using semen preserved around 18°C. However, increased reactive oxygen species levels during preservation produce sperm dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of adding superoxide dismutase (SOD) antioxidant mimics (Tempo and...

Abstract

Large percentages of dairy cows do not express behavioural signs of oestrus. Faecal and urine fatty acid concentrations increase during oestrus. The objective of the present study was to determine the milk FA profile of dairy cows during the oestrous and dioestrous periods and the relationship with ...

Abstract

Genetic parameters were estimated for growth-related traits and survival of the Kuruma shrimp Marsupenaeus japonicus based on 66 families, including 30 paternal half-sib families, which were obtained using artificial insemination of two females by each male. The variance components for...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the properties and to functionally characterize the cervical mucus that modulates sperm transport through the cervix by using ewe breeds with a divergent pregnancy rate (Belclare and Suffolk; high and low, respectively) following cervical insemination using...

Abstract

Background: In dairy cows, the energy cost of milk yield results in a negative energy balance (EB) and body fat mobilization that impairs reproductive efficiency. Emerging evidence suggests that the novel adipokines, Retinoic acid receptor responder protein 2 (RARRES2), and its main receptor,...

Abstract

At present, only 5% of pedigree dogs is being used for breeding. To increase the number of breeding dogs, one solution could be to start a canine semen bank based on the principle of semen donation, like in humans. Many dog owners have no desire to become dog breeders but are willing to preserve...
