Abstract

These results indicate that sperm motility can be maintained in TrilaDyl extended ram semen for up to 24 hrs, even if the extended semen has been diluted with non-isotonic water.

Neither of the treatments influenced percent normal sperm, or the prevalence of sperm head or midpiece abnormalities, although increased temperature did decrease PIA..
