The present study aimed to find out correlation of age, body weight and scrotal circumference with semen parameters in Beetle and Black Bengal Bucks. Total 12 buck selected 6 of each breed. Average Age was 24.00±0.00 &22.27 ± 0.035 months, body weight was 55.06 ± 0.306 & 42.47 ± 0.200 kg and scrotal circumference was 27.35±0.57 & 26.25± 0.034 cm in Bettle and Osmanabadi bucks, respectively. Average Semen volume was 1.27±0.027 & 1.30± 0.030ml, sperm concentration was 5601.63±75.810 & 4964.56 ±100.075 million, initial motility was 83.03±0.215 & 82.65± 0.352 per cent, 59.45±0.283 & 58.96± 0.386 per cent was the post thaw motility and 66.26±2.192 & 59.45± 2.692 was the number of straw produced from single ejaculate in Bettle and Osmanadi Breed, Respectively. Age was positively correlates with the body weight, scrotal circumference and concentration in Osmanabadi bucks. Body weight was found positive relation in terms of scrotal circumference and concentration in Beetal but in Osmanabadi only with Age. Scrotal circumference was positively correlate with body weight, volume and concentration in case of all selected breeds.

Keywords: Buck, Semen, Scrotal circumference, initial motility, frozen straws, concentration
