Semen Characteristics of the Brown Ecotype of Sahel Goats in the Semi-arid Zone of Nigeria

V.A. Maina, S.U.R. Chaudhari and A. Williams

Abstract:
A study was undertaken to determine the semen characteristics of the brown ecotype of sahel bucks. Five bucks were subjected to semen collection from two to twelve months of age. It was observed that the values of the semen characteristics increased over-age (months) and that at three months of age, there were significant levels of semen characteristic values. In conclusion, the spermiogram of the brown ecotype of sahel bucks was studied with a view to document the semen profile of indigenous and possibly evolving ecotypes of sahal bucks for future studies of improved breeding and selection.
