Abstract

It is concluded that the number of progressively motile sperm per AI dose is strongly related to subsequent pregnancy rates. Further, that it is possible to accurately produce AI straws of frozen bovine semen based on targeted post thaw numbers of progressively motile sperm in a commercial setting. Use of these findings could help improve bovine AI reproductive performance while allowing more effective utilization of superior bulls.
