Abstract:
Artificial insemination is the deliberate introduction of sperm into a female's cervix or uterine cavity for the purpose of achieving a pregnancy through in vivo fertilization by means other than intercourse. A total of 140 goats of different genetic groups were inseminated artificially at Bandipora on experimental basis under field conditions using Fresh liquid and frozen semen. Overall kidding percentage of 25.66 was observed in the present study. Signicantly, higher kidding percentage of 32.69 was observed using fresh semen in comparison to frozen semen (22%). A significantly (p<0.01) higher sperm abnormalities were observed in frozen-thawed semen (11.18±0.42 to 16.55±0.09%) than that of fresh semen (8.82±0.24 to 9.71±0.52%). 20 number of kids were born in local non-descript goats out of 80. A total of six kids were born (one Jamnapari, one Barbari and four Beetel kids) out of 20 kagani goats. It is concluded that artificial insemination has potential for genetic improvement of goats reared in backyard system as quality bucks are sold at earlier ages by farmers for meat purposes.
