Abstract

This study is a collaboration between Hedmark University College and Norsvin, the Norwegian artificial insemination (AI) boar company. Norsvin has a breeding program including the following breeds: Norwegian Landrace, Duroc, and Yorkshire. Sperm quality in breeding herds is of great economic importance. The classical methods for sperm quality evaluation are generally based on the examination of sperm concentration, motility and morphology. At Norsvin AI station, sperm concentration is routinely measured with a spectrophotometer. In addition, a light microscopy is used to exam motility and morphology. These evaluations are poor in predicting sperm quality and fertility, because only the samples with markedly poor quality can be detected. Flow cytometry, in combination with a variety of fluorochromes and compounds conjugated to fluorescent probes, has been shown to be a more objective and accurate method to evaluate sperm quality
