Estimate of divergence times in millions of years (MY) for pairwise comparisons (dI) between Hereford and members of the Bovinae subtribe using estimates from Nei (TN) and a relaxed molecular clock method (TC) using Bison and Yak divergence dates from fossil records as calibration points (2.0 and 1.7 MYA, respectively)
