Attempts to Achieve Semen Collections from Incapacitated Boer Bucks by Electro-ejaculation
M.N. Sundararaman, J. Kalatharan and M.J. Edwin

Abstract:
This study accounts the attempts made to collect semen by electro-ejaculation from genetically superior but incapacitated Boer goats. The bucks were in the age group of 2 to 3 years and were in use for upgrading local goats. The bucks became incapacitated with partial paralysis of hindquarters and could not mount to donate semen. A total of 35 semen collections, 20 and 15 from the 2 bucks respectively were done. The means±SE for ejaculate volume, mass activity, sperm motility, sperm concentration, live sperm percent and abnormal sperm percent were the semen characteristics analyzed. Except for ejaculate volume the mean values for all semen characteristics were very poor. Electrical stimulation using a battery-operated ejaculator was successful in achieving semen collections without any apparent injury to the incapacitated bucks.
