I have noticed that two of my cows skin on their necks has gotten really wrinkled the past couple of days. Does anybody know what could have caused this? I am new to raising cattle. Thank you for your help.

They are black commercial cows. The wrinkles are all along the sides of the entire neck.

They more than likely have some bos indus (brahma, etc.) in them. All my brangus cows have 'wrinkled' necks. The appearance of the wrinkles becomes more pronounced during the summer as they slick down.
