oa Agriprobe - Artificial insemination technology for ostriches : a way forward : journal

Volume 10, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1810-9799



The development of animal and human-friendly methods to collect semen from males and artificially inseminate female ostriches has generated a new interest in developing assisted reproductive technologies to assist development in the fragile industry. Research pertaining to the determination of the optimum semen collection frequency, semen handling and storage, insemination dose and frequency are currently underway at the Oudtshoorn Research Farm. This paper summarises our advances in developing a viable protocol for artificial insemination in this species, and provides directions for further research.
