  1. a Predicted effect of age category (calf, yearling, adult) and sex (female, male) for A. phagocytophilum Ct load, subset data (n = 359). Model reference categories: age category: calf; sex: female
  2. b The upper limit of this 95% CI is 0.95, i.e., 95% CI excludes 1
  3. *Statistically significant
