The effect of oxytocin on fertility in gilts artificially inseminated with a low sperm concentration and semen volume



The effect of oxytocin on fertility in gilts artificially inseminated with a low sperm concentration and semen volume



Jour Animal Sci 18(2): 634-640



Gilts (73) artificially inseminated with 2.5 billion sperm suspended in 20 ml of diluent were assigned to either a control group, a group receiving 10 IU of oxytocin intrauterine, or a group receiving 10 IU of oxytocin intravenously. The percent of ova recovered that were fertilized and the percent of gilts conceiving was obtained by boar-treatment group. There was a significant difference among treatments (P<0.01) and among boars (P<0.05) in percent fertility, but the boar-treatment interaction was not significant. The litter size at 3 days post-breeding was 5.6 for the control group, for the group receiving oxytocin intrauterine and 6.8 for the group receiving oxytocin intravenously. There was no significant difference among these groups in 3-day litter size.
