Abstract

The sperm motility and the quality in general, of the initial poor quality ejaculates or crossbred bulls could be effectively improved and the semen could be preserved at 5 0C with satisfactory sperm motility up to 96 hr following the use of glass-wool of Sephadex G-10 column filtration over the whole semen. The beneficial effect of filtration was marked in the initially poor quality ejaculates and hence may be practiced a a routine procedure in the semen bank to improve the quality of initially poor ejaculates from valuable sires.
