Effect of high environmental temperature on semen production and semen characters in rams

Effect of high environmental temperature on semen production and semen characters in rams

Acta Agraria et Silvestria, Zootechnica 11(2): 69-92

The experiment involved six 4-yr-old Polish Mountain rams. Wrapping of the scrotum led to an increase in the temp. of the air around the insulated scrotum to 38.5 deg C. The experimental treatment was continued until the occurrence of azoospermia, when the wrapping was removed. After the quality of the semen had returned to its pre-treatment level, insulation of the scrotum was again applied. The treatment was repeated on 2 further occasions.
