  In the present experiment volume, concentration, mass movement and forward movement of semen of different genotypes of bulls relating to body weight, age, sexual maturity and season were evaluated. A total of 1422 semen samples from 22 different bulls of seven genotypes were included in this study from Central Cattle Breeding Station (CCBS), Shavar, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Among the seven genotypes of bulls, only the Friesian bulls gave the largest volume of semen (14.26 ± 0.19 mL), mass movement (4.87 ± 0.07 grade) and forward movement (61.29 ± 0.31%) of sperm. While considering the age, the bulls of 4 to 6 years old provided the highest semen volume (13.60 ± 0.18 mL), sperm concentration (1219.89 ± 10.72 million sperm mL-1), mass movement (4.66 ± 0.06 grade) and forward movement (61.34 ± 0.28%) of sperm. The highest volume (12.01 ± 0.22 mL) of semen, sperm concentration (1182.29 ± 14.30 million sperm mL-1), mass movement (4.40 ± 0.08 grade) and forward movement (58.74 ± 0.54%) of sperm was found in 3 years age of sexual maturity. In case of body weight, the maximum volume of semen (12.16 ± 0.22 mL) and forward movement (60.25 ± 0.45%) of sperm was obtained in the bulls of 400 to 600 kg body weight and the volume was maximize (12.15 ± 0.23 mL) in summer season. The findings suggested that Friesian produced better quality semen than other genotypes while 4 to 6 years age and >600 to 700 kg body weight of bulls performed better than other age and body weight groups. The summer season gave better quality semen than other seasons.

  The data of the present study were collected from Bangladesh Milk Producers` Co-operative Union Limited (BMPCUL) at Baghabarighat, Sirajgong, Bangladesh to evaluate the bull performance through semen quality and 30-day Non Return Rate (NRR). Data on 245 ejaculates and 12,750 services of almost same aged of 5 Sahiwal bulls (B1, B2, B3, B4 and B5) over a period of 5 years were collected from Animal Breeding Section and Cattle Feed Unit of BMPCUL. The significant (p<0.01) individual sire effect was found on semen volume, three stages of sperm motility (initial, on dilution and post-thawing) and fertility. Significant (p>0.05) variation was not found for pH. The highest volume of semen per ejaculate, the initial, on dilution and post-thawing sperm motility were found in bull B4 and representing 5.60±0.19 mL, 73.56±0.61, 69.27±0.33 and 63.90±0.48%, respectively. The highest sperm motility was found in initial stage and then declined steadily up to post-thawing stage. Significant (p<0.01) positive correlations were observed between the three stages of sperm motility and fertility. The results of the present study revealed that evaluation of breeding bulls on the basis of semen quality and herd fertility is important and provides the guideline of the way to sire selection for reproductive performance.
