Madurantakam SN, Masilamani JE, Cryopreservation of Boer goat spermatozoa during cryopreservation cycle , Online J Vet Res, 10 (2) : 117 - 124, 2006. Cryo-preservation of Boar goat spermatozoa and variation in sperm kinematics between bucks was assessed by computer assisted semen analysis (CASA). Cryo-preservation affected sperm motility, progressive motility, path velocity, progressive velocity, track speed, beat cross frequency, straightness and linearity. The reduction in lateral amplitude of sperm head in post-thaw semen was also lower. Significant differences were noticed between bucks in post-thaw semen for path velocity and progressive velocity. The variations found between bucks in post-thaw semen for beat cross frequency and linearity were highly significant (P ≤ 0.01).
