The results vs. These results.

0

In the sentence below, is the second instance of, "the results" correct, or should it be "these results"?

 

"Below please find the results of those necropsies, what the results mean to you and your farm and our recommendations on how you should proceed."

 

Thanks!

Either would be all right, although I think that "these" sounds slightly better than repeating "the".  It comes across as a bit more defined or emphatic or something; the only problem is that it would be almost in juxtaposition to"those" referring to a different noun and thus be somewhat confusing.  Why have you used "those" and not  "the necropsies"  (whatever they may be!)
