Peak prevalence of C. jejuni in both cattle and sheep was observed during the summer and in cattle this apparent seasonality was associated with grazing pasture [odds ratio (OR) 2.14], while in sheep it was independent of grazing. Increased prevalence was associated with increased milk yield (OR 1.05) and herd size (OR 1.01) in dairy cattle, and with increased stocking density (OR 1-29) and pasture quality (OR 2.16) in sheep.
