Spermiogram of the White Ecotype of Sahel Bucks in Maiduguri Metropolis

V.A. Maina, S.U.R. Chaudhari and G.D. Mshelia

Abstract:
This study was undertaken to document the spermiogram of the white ecotype of Sahel bucks in Maiduguri from peripubertal, pubertal to post pubertal age. Five bucks were subjected to semen collection for a period of ten months. Their body weights and scrotal circumference were also measured from three to twelve months of age, while semen characteristics were analysed from two to twelve months of age. The high significant correlation values obtained between the semen characteristics with body weight and scrotal circumference showed that as one semen characteristic value was increasing, the body weights and scrotal circumference were also increasing. It was also observed that the values of the semen characteristics increased systematically over the months in the period of study. It was concluded that significant levels of semen characteristics at three months indicate that male Sahel goats could begin producing semen with viable spermatozoa by then as other early maturity breeds.
