Interpretive Summary: The artificial insemination (AI) of poultry is a two-step procedure. First, the semen is collected and second, the semen is inseminated. What transpires between these two-steps is a function of management goals and the staff’s technical abilities. This chapter will review important aspects of semen handling for AI including semen collection and its initial evaluation, and semen dilution and short term storage.
