Short summary
This study evaluated the effects of using frozen buck semen on reproductive performances of artificially inseminated Alpine goats relative to naturally mated goats. Reproductive performance, especially the pregnancy and mortality rates, was higher in the naturally bred goats than the artificially inseminated group. The oestrus synchronization followed by natural mating achieved better reproductive performance than the goats artificially inseminated using frozen semen.
