A practical and repeatable method for the cooling, during the processing phase, of sheep semen, with the aim of minimizing inter-experiment variation is described. The superior repeatability of the method can be ascribed to the fact that the cooling rate of the test tube with semen in a container of water, becomes independent of the volume of water in the container, above a certain critical volume.
