The prediction of sperm fertilizing ability has great economic importance for breeding herds when artificial insemination is used. Classical methods of semen evaluation generally measure the sperm concentration, progressive motility, percentage of viable cells, and acrosome morphology. These assays are poor in predicting sperm fertility, because only the samples with markedly poor quality can be detected. The development of new sperm tests that measure certain sperm functions is an attempt to… CONTINUE READING
