Five factorial experiments were conducted to examine the effects of concentration of tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane (Tris), type and concentration of sugar in the diluent, rate and method of dilution on the survival of goat spermatozoa after freezing by the pellet method. Spermatozoa tolerated a relatively wide range in concentration of Tris, but the cell survival depended on the type of sugar included in the Tris diluent. Glucose and fructose were more suitable components than lactose or… CONTINUE READING
