I have a 9 month old simmental heifer which I have in the barn with 2 other young heifers to keep them away from the bull. about 3 weeks ago I saw a lump on the bottom of her ear so I put in the chute and I could pull pieces off (it was like fatty lumps) I trimmed everything off and put betedine on and in few days it was healed,also about 6 inches below the on her neck are 3 spots similar to what was up above but not as big I scraped these off and sprayed them but they are still there. the other day I saw lumps on her other ear so I took them off and treated it with betadine , I also saw another small stsrting on the other ear which I took off. Is this warts or something else and is there something I could do to stop or prevent it

I've treated them with Betadine with success another hint too is Bleach will get rid of ringworms. As for warts a good suggestion is household paint in a spray can it usually works.

>If it is warts, the best thing to do is pull them off with pliers then put in a bollus(clear plastic pill type capslue) and feed it to them it will make them immune to the warts, hope this helps. SJIT :}

A tablespoon of dolomite in the feed daily definitely works. As far as I know Warts are viral and contagious (to other cattle, not humans) but are like chicken pox in humans, they generally only get it once.
