Chicken sperm cryosurvivability may be enhanced by manipulating diets fed to roosters because diets modify quality of fresh semen. This study investigated the possibility of added dietary calcium (Ca) improving chicken sperm cryosurvivability due to an elevation in seminal Ca concentration ([Ca(2+)]) and a reduction in blood cholesterol (Ch), which may increase fresh sperm quality, thus thermo-tolerance and cryosurvivability. Thirty 21-wk-old Barred Plymouth Rock roosters were fed diets… CONTINUE READING
