  • a Serotypes for which all isolates carry no deletion in the 3′ end of fimA are not included in this table.

  • b Only one isolate representing each unique serotype/ST combination found on a given farm was counted; these numbers were used to avoid the overrepresentation of a subtype due to resampling on a given farm (e.g., when isolates with the same serotype/ST combination were isolated on different dates on the same farm) (Table 1).
