What are Warts?
Warts in cattle are caused by the contagious virus papillomavirus. Four types of the virus are known to produce warts on cattle. Calves are most susceptible with few cases of warts seen in cattle over 2 years of age. Warts appear 1 to 6 months after infection with the virus. Not all animals carrying the virus will have warts. lt can be transmitted from the unapparent carrier to the susceptible animal. Warts are usually more of an appearance problem than a physical problem. Heifers suffering from cluster warts may lead to painful milking. The virus spread is unpredictable. Some animals appear to show some resistance. Any weakening of the teat skin from fly bits, scratches etc. may allow the virus to enter the skin.
