J Hyg (Lond). 1985 Aug;95(1):23-8. doi: 10.1017/s0022172400062240.

Abstract

Among 622 cultures of Salmonella montevideo, 27 biotypes belonging to two biogroups were recognized. One biogroup (10di) was predominant in all animals in Scotland but only in sheep in England and Wales. The other (biogroup 2d) was responsible for almost all human, cattle and poultry infection in England and Wales, but only 24% of human infection in Scotland.
