Artificial Insemination (AI) permits intense selection of sires with exceptional merits and provides opportunity to exploit the value of superior sires.
This book constitutes an update of recent developments in the field of assisted reproductive technology and includes selection and management of breeding buck, semen collection, processing and cryopreservation, estrous synchronization and Artificial insemination, pregnancy diagnosis, and quality control in Artificial Insemination has been included.
The book covers all the basic knowledge related to artificial insemination in goats and to increase goat productivity and as a result meet the needs and demands of human communities. The work will be useful veterinary students as well as new entrants to this entrepreneurship.
