ADENIJI, Deborah Adejoke; OYEYEMI, Matthew Olugbenga  y  OLUGBEMI, Joshua Bolaji. Sperm Morphological Characteristic and Mating Behaviour of Proviron® Treated West African Dwarf Bucks with Testicular Degeneration. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.2, pp.623-626. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022010000200046.

This study was conducted to determine the effect of scrotal insulation and post insulation Proviron® treatment on sperm morphological characteristics and mating behavior. Twelve healthy WAD bucks, free from any clinical or andrological disorder were used. Scrotal insulation was done using insulating bags for 30 days. After insulation, the bucks were divided into two groups. The treatment group received 100mg/head /week of Proviron® for 3 weeks. Semen collection was done using the electroejaculation method in all phases of the study. The proviron® treated bucks, when compared with insulation and post insulation untreated phases, showed significant reduction (p<0.05) in sperm cell abnormalities which reduced from 15.89±22.89 in post insulation untreated phase to 2.81±0.83 in post insulation treated phase. The Proviron® treated bucks also showed increased physical vigor by riding, mounting and fighting their untreated counterparts.
