Have a bull calf that has warts. One on it's hip is large. I noticed them first when I was weaning. Will this effect meat?
Thanks.

No, they'll go away one their own. Or you can crush one and make it bleed, or take one off and feed it to him or take one off and buried it in a dirty wash cloth under your neighbors sisters mother in laws cousins porch. It all works about the same.

I believe Dunn is correct. However, should you like to take other action;

1 Pull some of the warts off with pliers...making them bleed. This apparently sets up antibodies.(It is recommended to wear gloves and keep things sterile...starting with purple spray on the area before procedure)
2 Give a vacinnation of ...Killed Wart Vaccine(from your Vet)...and another 10 days later.

Around here animals with warts are discounted. :frowns:
