In a field trial, 633 ewes from 24 farms were inseminated vaginally using liquid semen (150 x 10(6) per dose) collected from 15 rams. The semen was either diluted with a milk-based extender (M), filled in 0.2 ml straws and stored for 12 or 24 h (M12, M24) or diluted with M but with the addition of gelatine, filled in 0.5 ml straws and stored for 12 or 24 h (G12, G24). The hypothesis was that a larger volume and the addition of gelatine would prolong the survival of the spermatozoa. The ewes… CONTINUE READING
