The changes in swine production have led studs to have a greater number of boars, and the collections are being centralized in 2 or 3 days. Therefore, the studs need to process a greater number of ejaculates in a shorter time.
All the techniques and systems that have been emerging for the processing of ejaculates have been aimed at increasing:
– The speed of analysis;
– The ease or simplicity;
– The accuracy.
Thus, with the introduction of post-cervical insemination and due to the reduction of dose volume and sperm concentration that it entails, a poor-quality ejaculate affects a greater number of animals. Therefore, the analysis of the spermiogram of the ejaculates acquires more and more importance.
The count of total, motile, and normal sperm is crucial since it will allow determining the potential doses that can be produced from an ejaculate. In this way, we can make the most of those ejaculates with better quality.
