Development and application of goose artificial insemination shelf
Geese are seasonal reproductive animal from Oct. to Mar. next year. Geese dividing into individual cage for breeding study are needed. It is also need a lot of labor for the breeding study. The purpose of this study was to develop an artificial insemination shelf to save labor. The result showed that we need only a person for semen collection using the shelf for gander semen collection, but the traditional method three people were needed. The shelf was also tried to use on female geese for artificial insemination. The female geese were also can be fixed well by the shelf. But it still has some problems on the female artificial insemination.
