The sperm-rich fractions of ejaculates from 8 boars were studied. Osmotic pressure was measured in 14 ejaculates, and ranged from 300 to 320 mOsm/litre with both highest and lowest values coming from different ejaculates from the same boar. The pH of 30 ejaculates was measured, and ranged from 7.2 to 7.7; these values were found in different ejaculates from the same boar (not the same boar that showed the osmotic pressure range).
