Abstract:
The present study was conducted to study the effect of monensin supplementation on semen quality and seminal antioxidants status of alpine beetal crossbred bucks. Ten sexually mature bucks were divided into two groups. The control animals were fed according to the requirement of ICAR (2013) standards, with 40:60 ratios of concentrate and green roughage. The treatment group was fed similar to control with addition of 20 mg/head/d of monensin sodium for three months. Weekly semen samples were collected for three months i.e twelve ejaculates. Mean± SE value of sperm concentration (106/ml) was 2655.83±69.39 and 2708±62.54, progressive motility 79.7±0.91 and 80.3±0.88, acrosomal integrity 85.28±0.34 and 86.33±0.46 and HOST 80.11±0.51 and 81.15±0.47 in control and treatment group respectively. Mean± SE value of superoxide dismutase (SOD) 150.72±3.3 and 151.90±3.1, Melondialdihyde (MDA) 0.72±0.018 and 0.71±0.009 and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) 10.36±0.12 and 10.50±0.08 in control and treatment group respectively. Monensin (20 mg/head/d) had no significant (P>0.05) effect on semen quality parameters and antioxidant status of seminal plasma.
