Effects of long-term extenders on sperm quality characteristics

What is it about?

It shows that cooling of boar semen in different long-term extenders at 10°C after a 24-h holding time improves the post-thaw sperm quality characteristics.

Why is it important?

This study provides another approach to improve the cryopreservation technology of boar semen.
