  1. * Data represent the taxa identified at the genus level with a positive correlation with the dose of milk powder estimated on farms B and C. Only taxa with a significant correlation (Bonferroni corrected p-value < 0.05) are shown
  2. a Spearman correlation coefficients [0.4; 0.6] indicate moderate to strong associations, whereas coefficients < 0.4 indicate weak associations and were not considered for further analyses
