Effect of embryo transfer on semen characteristics and scrotal circumference of performance tested bulls



Effect of embryo transfer on semen characteristics and scrotal circumference of performance tested bulls



Animal Science Research Report Agricultural Experiment Station, Oklahoma State University (P-986): 2 pp.



Performance tested bulls resulting from embryo transfer were compared to bulls resulting from normal conception and prenatal development for characteristics associated with bull fertility. Scrotal circumference and semen motility and morphology were compared over a 2-year period on 1066 bulls (Embryo transfer n=162; normal n=904). It was shown that bulls resulting from embryo transfer had larger scrotal circumference.
