The aim of this study was to determine the effects of the antioxidants curcumin, inositol and carnitine on microscopic seminal parameters, lipid peroxidation LPO and the antioxidant activities of sperm, following the freeze-thawing of Angora goat semen. The pooled semen samples were diluted in a Tris-based extender, including curcumin 2. The diluted semen was slowly at a rate of 0.
A consortium in Ankara looks to protect the mohair-producing Angora breed. This just in: Turkey has its first goat sperm bank, to be run by scientists from Ankara University in the country's capital city. According to Hurryiet Daily News, the initiative was founded through a combination of government research grants, university veterinary staff support, and the backing of Italy's Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche National Research Council. The goal is to bolster the number of top-quality Angora goats in the country, where the animal's numbers have declined sharply, despite rising in other parts of the world.

This experiment was conducted to study variations of serum testosterone and seminal characteristics of Markhoz male goats. Blood samples were obtained via jugular vein, and semen was collected by using an artificial vagina from 14 fertile male goats 2—3 years of ageat day intervals starting on 15 July and ending on 30 October during breeding and non-breeding season. Variation of sperm density, motility and progressive motility was not significant during the sampling period.
Background: Most part of ram spermatozoa membrane has unsaturated fatty acids phospholipids. Membrane structure of cells is composed of double ordered phospholipid layers adorned with mosaic-like protein, glycoprotein and glycolipids. Sperm freezing protocols could be negatively affected on ram sperm motility, viability and acrosome integrity during cryopreservation.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of egg yolk and seminal plasma on the viability of cryopreserved goat semen. To this end, four fertile Saanen bucks, aged between 10 months and 1 year, and weighing 18 to 25 kg, were used. Semen was collected from each buck by the artificial vagina method at the end of breeding season June-July.
