Cut them off and eat them yourself or put them in your underware or feed them to a flock of geese. All you have to do is cut them off and the blood stream makes antibodies to the virus.

I was always told to crush them w/ a pair of pliers before removing them.

Probably works better/quicker.

castor oil works but you have to make several applications for it to work.

Why would you put the warts in their feed? What would crushing them prior to pulling them off do? Sorry, I've never seen warts on cattle that I know of and these things sound weird to me.

When you put them in their feed their bodied will start to produce the antibodies faster. Your reply obviously show me that you have never been in a show barn. This method has been used for years. You do not have to put them in their feed but it WILL work quicker.

Showmom, please try not to be so prejudiced against us commercial folks. I'd be willing to bet that the greatest majority of commercial cattlemen have never met that requirement.

We only show cattle as a result of being cattle producers. So I am not prejudiced against commercials folk. If you go back a read the post Ollie is the one who put down my suggestion. I was only trying to defend my post.

No, I have never been in a show barn. I dated a guy once that showed, but that was before I had any cattle of my own so I didn't pay much attention. Sorry to sound so stupid - I'm just trying to learn everything I can here.

Sidney,

From what I gather, crushing the wart before they are removed gets the natural antibody in the blood working like Ollie said.
I have also heard of feeding them back to the calves. But most folks around here that do that put the warts in a bolus and give them back that way.

There is also a vaccine for warts. I, have had NO luck with it at all. I have found that I never seem to vaccinate for the right strain of warts. I quit doing that several years ago.

If you can find the main wart, crush it, then remove it you should be able to see signifantly less warts with in a few days. I generally crush the large ones and then the smaller ones will dissappear. Probably should do this as soon as you notice the warts, too keep from getting your cattle removed from a show if someone sees one lingering.

Maybe I have something to learn here. When you break the wart off some pieces of the virus get into the blood stream . On that we agree I think. Now then you say that if I feed the wart to the animal after that that the virus then would get into the blood stream and produce antibodies quicker. I'm quite sure I don't know much about this , I am not a vet but that dosn't seem logical to me. What about the feeding process will speed up the distruction of the remaining warts?

[ Your reply obviously show me that you have never been in a show barn. ] I had a show sheep that stood third out of 4 at the county fair so I have been in a show barn I guess.

If you are a sheep herder then why are you on a cattle Q&A board?
The reason that I am in the sheep business is they are more profitable. They are healthier. Sheep people smell better . I also think sheep are smarter. The way a sheep looks you in the eye you can just tell these things. Also you can run more sheep per acre. More livestock meens more money. The reason I am on Cattle Today is there is not a Sheep Today. Every time I type that in it redirects me to a Texas porn site. And that is the news from here in Oklahoma.

You don't have to explain why you are a member of this great online community, nor why you choose to run whatever livestock you want to. It is no one elses business but your own. I think you have given great opinions and insights to this board.

Thanks Sid,
You have know idea how lonely it is being the only lanolin lover in the land.

Out of curiosity - what is the market you use for sheep? Do you sell the wool or the lambs? Do you sell at auction or private treaty?
