Artificial insemination with frozen semen of Limousin bulls was evaluated for the post thawing changes in quality characteristics in semen and their effect on the sperm viability, motility and spermatozoa membrane integrity. Besides the frost-bonding effect on the production of heat shock protein (HSP) and their protecting nature against the extreme temperature changes on the extra and intracellular integrity of spermatozoa were evaluated. Twenty four semen samples randomly drawn were subjected to freezing as per regulation of the Director General of Animal Husbandry, Indonesia. The frozen semen after thawing showed decreasing viability from 89.67±4.03% to 60.00±3.30%; motility from 76.87±4.90% to 50.42±4.87% and sperm membrane integrity from 65.88±5.82% to 29.00±3.55%. These values were in accordance with that of minimum percentage of motility of 40 per cent.
