ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION OF SWINE

VERA GRANACI

Abstract


The advantages of artificial insemination in swice have been reported previosly by very much athors. The objective of this study was to examine the effect of administration of algal extract from Spirulina platensis – BioR. on the quality and fecundity of the sire boars semen. It was utilised two regimes of BioR administration (during10 and 5 days) on the sire boars. The results of the present study indicate that BioR preparation obtained by biosynthesis from Spirulina platensis has a beneficial effect on the reproductive function of the sire boars. The optimal period of BioR administration can be reduced till 5 days. Administration of BioR from 5 to 10 days in the sire boars was contributed to increase the ejaculate volume. the mobility of raw spermatozoa. the farrowing rates for sows and the total number of piglets born.
