Table 2 Comparison of the MLMG patterns in dairy cattle farms in northern Italy, where more than one Neospora caninum-positive foetus had been sampled and genotyped during the study period

From: Spatial distance between sites of sampling associated with genetic variation among Neospora caninum in aborted bovine foetuses from northern Italy
