Six rams (1.5-2 years old) were randomly divided into three groups of 2 rams. Rams in T1and T2 were subcutaneously injected, every other day with dose of 50 and100 mg/kg body weight respectively ,for 45 days while control group in T0 received normal saline. The results showed a significant increase (P<0.05) in the The sperm concentration of T1 as compared with control group, while there were no significant differences among treated groups(T1 and T2). Group 2 showed a significant (P<0.05) increases in mass activity, individual motility and live sperm percentage.
