Interpretive Summary: Determining sperm viability in a semen sample gives a measure of semen quality and is necessary if the semen is to be inseminated based on the numbers of viable sperm per insemination. It is also important when studying the impact of different semen storage procedures, or changes in husbandry on sperm viability. The chapters are geared toward both poultry industry and poultry research personnel.
