The mean number of cattle movements was determined over the months July-December to compare cattle movements across years (i.e. to correct for seasonal effects). The numbers between brackets represent the range [minimum- maximum] of cattle movements (*10^{3}). *different letters mean that the numbers between years are significantly different from each other (Pāā¤ā0.05).
