  • a All univariate linear regression models were significant at P < 0001 .

  • b Milk production of all seropositive cows in the herd (in kilograms) divided by total milk volume of the herd (in kilograms).

  • c Sum of log10 serum antibody titer for all seropositive lactating cows in the herd divided by number of lactating cows in the herd.
