Estimate of model's seasonal component for each colic type. For each colic type an estimate of the model's seasonal component was extracted using the posterior mean of the parameter associated with each of the sine and cosine terms based on the frequencies detected for each group in Table 2. With the exception of the large colon impaction group (12 month cycles only) all models incorporated 12- and 6-monthly cycles.
