Would anyone know what fly bites would look like on a angus bull? We bought a two yr old , from a young farmer , and when they brought it over, it has spots on both sides, he said it was from fly bites, ( really)....we have never seen anything like this, has anyone ever seen anything like this???? It's not warts, just looks like white spots on his hide, ?????
Thanks for any info , Farmerclark

Man years ago, I had bought a cow, which was pure Black Angus. (I knew the cow well, prior to purchase, I knew her heritage). As the years passed, she developed white spots/polka-dots, starting at her shoulders and eventually were scattered throughout her body. Noticable in Summertime mainly. Nick-named her "Spotty Cow"ers were not fly bites. Just an odd color deal. Similar to Bend'Or spots on Thoroughbred horses.

Unless the spots you are talking about are also raised bumps, I wouldn't be to concerned about them.

Have you got pictures?
