Losses of spermatozoa from the vagina of the ewe



Losses of spermatozoa from the vagina of the ewe



Proceedings of the Australian Society of Animal Production 15: 759



A series of experiments was carried out to quantify losses of spermatozoa from the vagina of artificially inseminated Merino ewes, and to determine if mating to vasectomised rams immediately after AI contributed to losses. The loss of spermatozoa from the vagina was rapid, and did not vary with the volume or concentration of the inseminate. The percentage of spermatozoa remaining in the vagina decreased from 82% at 3 h after insemination to 18% at 9 h after.
