Yep these are on yearling heifers, will be breeding in Nov/Dec and selling a few of them in spring consignmentTCRanch said:Not unusual for my retained heifers to get them, generally in winter (late Dec - Feb). I just ignore them and they go away. That said, I have two 3 year old cows that had them at appx 10 months, went away and all of the sudden they're back. Not big, just a few small clusters. And definitely not in a drought this year. Seriously considering hitting those two with a wart vaccine when we wean next month.
Mine are beef, in pastures and generally not wet. Still get 'em.Hardnosecattleco said:torogmc81 said:
Not sure the area ur in but as far as warts go if ur animals are in a pasture really shouldn't have any. And warts mostly are likely when animals are in wet areas. I have two friends who are hoof trimmers on dairy's. Me personally have only ever seen it on one beef cow
