A rural dairy farm with 233 dairy animals was investigated for the complaint of recurrent cattle warts. 103 cows were screened as per owner’s request and 3 were found to have varying degree of warts along with history of frequent recurrence. In severe cases, the warts interfered with machine milking and resulted in milking difficulties. Clinically it was diagnosed as Bovine papillomatosis and PCR testing confirmed the diagnosis. Autogenous vaccines helped in reducing of warts.
