Volume 52, Issue 2 , September 2021, , Pages 133-140


  The current study aimed to optimize artificial insemination in aged broiler breeder hens in two experiments. In the first experiment, the effect of (two) different diluted semen temperatures (5 and 25 °C) of Hubbard rooster (40 roosters, 58 weeks of age) on fertility, hatchability and sperm penetration ...  Read More

Evaluation of effective management practices on pregnancy rate in several herds of ‎Holstein dairy cows in Iran

Sara Hassanvand-Javanmard; Ali Sadeghi-Sefidmazgi

Volume 51, Issue 4 , March 2021, , Pages 253-262


  Pregnancy rate is an important trait in productivity of the dairy herds. To evaluate the effective management practices on pregnancy rate of Iranian Holstein herds, the reproductive management data of 60 herds (Tehran, Isfahan, Alborz, and Mashhad provinces) were collected using a questionnaire based ...  Read More

Effect of high dietary zinc, copper and manganese concentration and source on ‎plasma progesterone and reproductive performance in repeat breeder cows

Vahid Gholami; Hamid Amanlou; Davood Zahmatkesh; Nima Sadeghi

Volume 51, Issue 4 , March 2021, , Pages 263-273


  We used 263 Holstein repeat breeder dairy cows (193±58 DIM) based on randomized complete design. Animals in control group (no supplementation), groups 2 and 3 supplemented with 2,244 mg of zinc, 295.5 mg copper and 480 mg manganese either inorganic trace minerals (ITM) and chelated (glycinates) ...  Read More
