Abstract: The purpose of this study was to see how the addition of Purslane (Portulaca Oleracea) leaves extract to the Tris egg yolk citrate extender affected the sperm motility of cryopreserved Surti buck semen. A total of 64 semen samples were taken from four Surti bucks, with 16 samples collected twice a week via the artificial vagina method. To attain a final concentration of 100×106 sperm/ml, the pooled sperm was diluted with the tris-egg yolk citrate extender and the Purslane (Portulaca Oleracea) leaves aqueous extract was at varied concentrations: 0% (T1), 1% (T2), 2% (T3), and 3% (T4). The initial mean individual sperm motility percent was differed non-significantly between all the groups. Pre-freeze and post thaw mean individual sperm motility (%) was significantly (p<0.01) higher in T4 group as compared to T1, T2 and T3 group. Highest mean motility degeneration rate (%) was found at pre-freeze and post-thaw stage in T4 group followed by T3, T2 and T1 group.
