ive got a 18 month old bull with warts popping up, some penny sized ones on the belly and one on the neck, also some small ones around the eyes and a small one on the nose. would you guys be worried about the warts getting bigger or affecting the bulls eyes or tool? or causing the calves to get warts? my neighbor had calves get warts this year and they were gray and got the size or about 1/3 or your fist

crush and pull off a couple of them. That should kick his immune system in and he will get rid of them.

I had the same situation happen earlier this summer. I let them go. When she calved the calf nursed just fine. Next day i noticed they were gone. I'm going to assume the calf ingested them. Not sure if that's a bad thing or not. The calf hasn't had any yet. Going on 3 months old I believe.

I suppose it could have given the calf a sort of immunity...
