ABSTRACT:

 15 adult Red Sokoto (Maradi} bucks were used to evaluate testicular morphometry and some biochemical characteristics of testicular spermatozoa and fluid in the breed. While paired testes weight, paired tunic weight and mean testis density were 103.58± ,7.68g, 4.69±0.269 and 0.97±0,01g/cm3 respectively, paired caput weight, paired corpus weight, paired cauda weight and paired epididymal weight were 6.99 ± 0.41g, 2.27 ± 0.13g, 5.39 ± 0.31g and 14.26 ± 0.79g respectively. The paired ductus deferens weight was 1.72 ± 0.10g. ,thl derivations from. testicular morphormetry showed a normal pattern of development and only similarities (P>0.05) between left and right organs. The linear relationships between the morphometric characteristics showed both significant (P<0.05) and highly significant (P<0.01; P<0.001) positive correlations. There were also only similarities (P>0.05) between testicular spermatozoa and fluid in the concentrations of both total protein and cholesterol.
