Semen was collected from three adult bucks twice a week and samples pooled together. Sperm samples (seven repeats) containing royal jelly in five levels (0,0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2%) had been frozen. After freezing semen samples were thawed and examined in terms of motility, survival and integrity of the plasma membrane, normal acrosome and DNA integrity . Average total motility, livability, plasma membrane integrity and DNA % at 1% royal jelly were higher than other treatment and control groups (P<0.05). Therefore, the use of royal jelly in goat semen diluent can improve some sperm parameters after freezing process. 1482317240.php
