This study was conducted to investigate the predictive capacity of fertility and litter size of sperm head morphometric measurements when the ejaculates fulfilled the minimum requirements commonly used in artificial insemination (AI). Semen samples from 11 rabbits (77 ejaculates) were evaluated for sperm motility, abnormal spermatozoa and sperm head morphometry using computer automated sperm analysis system. Morphometric dimensions for length, width, area and perimeter were analysed. Only… CONTINUE READING
