RESISTANCE OF BULL AND BUCK SPERMATOZOA TO COLD SHOCK
V. Prasanth, E. Mathai and C.P.N. Iyer
There was significant reduction in live sperm percentage after five minutes of cold shock both in bull and buck semen. The reduction was more in buck semen than in bull semen. Different samples from same animals showed varying ability to withstand cold shock. It is presumed that buck spermatozoa are more sensitive to cold shock than bull spermatozoa.
