Udder growths

Postby Robinsnestfarms » Mon Nov 14, 2011 12:47 pm

Udder with growths. @ 14 month old heifer, has couple of growths in between teats. Possibly bred/probably not. Very fat. Husband says one of growths looks like sweet potato tuber. Any ideas?

she's a hereford, angus cross. Additional info: closer look reveals growth about 5-6 inches long. Sectioned into about three parts. Bottom is shaped like upside down mushroom, about three inches diameter. Then there is a another section shaped something like a peanut. The top section is the same. Each one is divided by an area that is almost closed off. Like there is a band around it. There is no hair on it and the rest of udder looks normal. Small unformed teats.

no. udder is normal. This is a segmented growth, 5-6 inches long, no hair. Three parts, bottom one is like upside down mushroom, other two are shaped like peanuts(hanging vertically). Sections separated by distinct rings.

We've got a good discussion going on this on Breeding/Calving Issues under Udder Growths. Most think it is warts but no one has said how to treat. Please move to that post and join us. I've posted pics but they are small.
