Current role of semen storage and artificial insemination in the turkey industry

Current role of semen storage and artificial insemination in the turkey industry

British Poultry Science 30(2): 461-469

The turkey industry is moving towards the development of stud farms, but an essential condition is the existence of efficient methods to store semen. Much research has been done recently to determine the number of viable spermatozoa in an insemination dose needed for maintaining optimum fertility. Practical methods to determine the number of intact spermatozoa in semen, both before and after storage, are under development. It is now possible to store turkey semen for 6 to 24 h without appreciable loss in fertility and hatchability. Ideal experimental conditions for 48 h storage have not yet been fully determined. Development of new storage media, allowing the insemination of very low numbers of spermatozoa, may provide interesting possibilities regarding the use of elite sires.
