This chapter will shed light on the current understanding of the effect of cryopreservation on sperm cells, advances in cryopreservation in terms of cryoprotectants and freezing protocols for bovines, caprines, ovines, equines, and camelids. Moreover, this chapter will shed light on other technologies needed to be adopted for different animal species.
