The objective of this study was to elaborate chemically defined extender based on casein, added with polyphenolic antioxidants, for the freezing of semen from ram breeders. To evaluate Tris-casein (5% glycerol), plus polyphenols, four semen pools from three rams sires were frozen (0µM; 10µM resveratrol; 5µM quercetin; 25µM catechin; 25µM catechin + 10µM resveratrol; 25µM catechin + 5µM quercetin; 10 µM resveratrol + 5µM quercetin; 25µM catechin + 10µM resveratrol + 5µM quercetin). After thawing, the samples were evaluated for sperm kinetics, plasma and acrosomal membrane integrity and mitochondrial membrane potential. There was no significant difference (p≥0.05) between the control group and the treatments for any of the evaluated parameters. However, it can be seen that the Tris-casein extender was efficient in cryopreserving ram semen. It is concluded that the Tris-casein extender can be used for freezing ram semen.(AU)
