Warts on my calf

Hi all...
I'm new to this site.
I have a problem and just wanting to see if anyone has a good outcome for me.
I have a calf, she is 4 months old and I have realised that she has something like warts around her neck area.
Does anyone know a solution for me of what I should do.
Thanks all in advance

to horses, all of which can affect different internal organs and cause serious damage.
