Abstract

There were made 16 semen collections from 6 Jaffarabadi x Mediterranean buffaloes bulls, aged aproximately 36 months, every fortnight from may lo august 1990, either by artificial vagina or by electroejaculation. Fructose and calcium in mg/ml were determined in total semen, while GOT and GPT in u/ml were determined in the fraction of semen rich in spermatozoa. It was possible to detect that values of fructose are higher in samples collected by artificial vagina, while determinations of GOT and GPT showed, higher values in semen obtained by electroejaculation. In respect to Ca++ there was not significant difference between methods of collection.
