The relationships among sperm parameters of West African Dwarf (WAD) goat semen were determined. The semen samples were extended in Tris-egg yolk extender and assessed for sperm motility, acrosome and membrane integrities, abnormality and malondialdehyde (MDA) concentrations from 0 to 240 h of storage at 5°C. All the parameters were found to have highly significant correlations (positive/negative) except between motility and MDA concentration as well as abnormality and MDA concentration. This study suggests that a significant correlation exists among the sperm parameters of WAD goat bucks and the semen stored at 5°C up to 48 h is suitable for artificial insemination beyond which deterioration to sperm viability occurred.
