Male ART in animal species

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Some assisted reproductive technologies (ART) are used commonly in animals throughout much of the world, most often to improve agricultural animal reproduction. For example, the advances in artificial insemination (AI) technology have enabled animal breeders to collect, extend, and store the sperm from sires with improved genetic traits for breeding multiple females at different locations. Advances in semen processing technology have enabled the development of sex sorting of sperm and alternative forms of storage. Embryo transfer is an ART that is fairly common commercially in cattle and in vitro fertilization is becoming more common. Most other ART are used primarily in animals as research tools.
