Varying degrees of oviductal trauma were induced in turkey breeder hens during artificial insemination to determine the effects on humoral anti-sperm antibody production and fertility. Two experiments were completed. Mode of artificial insemination had no effect on fertility or the production of serum anti-sperm antibodies in either experiment. It was concluded that no relationship exists between serum anti-sperm antibody titers and fertility.
