  • a Based on sequential samples (2 or 3 serial samples per individual) collected 9 to 49 months apart. Shown are means with 95% CIs in parentheses.

  • b Time from earliest to latest sample.

  • c Decimals represent fractions of a year.

  • d Based on estimated age of animal or known time of seroconversion.

  • e NE, upper boundary not estimable.
