Abstract


This research was conducted to investigate the effect of various concentrations of lactose supplementation in Tris extender for maintaining the quality of Etawa crossbreed goat epididymal spermatozoa stored at 3-5° C. Semen in the control group was diluted with a tris extender containing 20% egg yolk without lactose. Semen in the test groups was diluted with a tris extender containing 20% egg yolk and added with 0.3% (0.3 g per 100 mL extender) and 0.6% lactose for group TL1 and TL2, respectively. Parameters evaluated of the fresh epididymal spermatozoa were motility, concentration, percentage of live, and abnormality of spermatozoa, while for diluted-spermatozoa were motility and percentage of live spermatozoa. Spermatozoa observation was conducted until it reaches 40% motility. The results showed that the mean percentage of motility, live sperm, concentration, and abnormality of epididymal spermatozoa were 70%; 81%; 3,220x106 cells/mL; and 4.30%, respectively in all group. After dilution, the percentage of motility and live spermatozoa were also 70% and 81.00±1.58%, respectively in all groups. The decreasing of spermatozoa motility was observed on day 4 of storage, in which percentage of spermatozoa motility in control group (40.00±0.00%) was significantly lower (P<0.05) than those in TL1 (44.00±2.24%) and TL2(45.00±0.00%) groups. Percentage of live spermatozoa in control (63.20±2.68%) was not significantly different (P>0.05) than TL1(65.40±1.95%) and TL2 (65.60±1.95%). In conclusion, the supplementation of lactose into Tris extender could maintain the epididymal spermatozoa of Etawa crossbreed for 3 days of storage at 3-5° C.
