Abstract

The effect of oxytocin on sperm motility of bull spermatozoa was investigated over a period of 2.5 hours. Measurements were carried out with a Lazymot apparatus, depending on the Laser-Doppler principle. In a concentration of 10 IU/ml, oxytocin was found to significantly increase the percentage of motile spermatozoa and sperm velocity compared with saline controls.
