The study was carried out on four Gir bull (4-6 years) located at Cattle Breeding Farm J.A.U. Junagadh for a period of 6 weeks. Semen was collected using artificial vagina method once weekly for six weeks from each of the bulls. The semen was evaluated for physical characteristics. On evaluation of 24 semen ejaculates (6 ejaculates from each bull) of neat semen, ejaculate volume (ml), sperm concentration (million/ml), mass motility (0-5 scale), individual motility (%), sperm viability (%), sperm abnormality (%), HOST reactive spermatozoa (%), and acrosome integrity were found to be 5.80± 0.41, 1267.63± 106.32, 3.88 ± 0.07, 85.83 ± 1.94,87.58 ± 0.42,10.87 ± 0.41, 83.00 ± 0.84 and 91.87 ± 0.32, respectively. There was a significant difference in volume and concentration of semen between the bulls while the difference was non-significant for the mass motility, individual motility, viability, abnormality, HOST reactive spermatozoa and acrosomal integrity.
