 ABSTRACT

Semen ejaculates (1454) from 10 healthy  Sirohi bucks collected during year 1998 and 1999 were processed.  Tris egg yolk dilutor was used for extending semen. The mean volume, sperm concentration, initial motility, pre-freezing motility and post thaw motility were 1.06 + 0.01 ml,  22631 + 17.61 x 106/ ml,  86.51 + 0.19 per cent, 83.87 +  0.24 per cent and 58.17 + 0.43, respectively. The mean reaction time was 48.35  + 0.76, respectively. The mean ejaculate volume was found to be maximum as 1.13 + 0.02 ml. in rainy season and maximum sperm concentration  in winter  (2762.5 ± 30.62 x 106 /ml). Although initial motility did not differ during seasons, the mean post thaw motility in rainy sean was highest (60.13 + 0.8 per cent)  compared to summer season (55.68 + 1.09 ). Ejaculate volume was negatively and significantly correlated to sperm concentration (r=0.17) and post thaw motility (r=0.10). Reaction time was negatively correlated to ejaculate volume(r=0.56) and initial motility (r=0.16).

Key words: Tris egg yolk extender, Goat, Artificial Insemination, Sperm
