Present study was conducted to evaluate the supplementation of different levels of antioxidant Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA) on the improvement cryopreservation of Mahabadi goat sperm. Four healthy Mahabadi goats (3-4 years) were used to collect semen samples by artificial vagina, once a week for five weeks during non-breeding season. Good quality samples were pooled and divided into five equal aliquots supplemented with extender containing different concentrations of BHA (0, 1, 2 and 4 mM). Sperm parameters, including motility and progressive motility, viability, membrane integrity and total abnormality were assessed. According to the results, BHA at the concentration of 4 mM significantly improved sperm post-thaw viability, membrane integrity, total and progressive motility (P>0.05), but there were no significantly differences among other levels (1 and 2 mM) and control groups (P>0.05). Furthermore, abnormality percentage was not significant among different levels of BHA and control groups (P>0.05). Current study indicated that inclusion of BHA in extender may be an approach to improve post thaw goat sperm quality.
