Meet Doc Tom
Thank you for visiting our website! My name is Dr. Tom Roskos, but my client friends call me Doc Tom. I am a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and owner of Flowing River Farm with my family in west-central Wisconsin.
After receiving my degree, I returned to my family's farm in Arcadia, WI and started a private large-animal vet practice in 1983. My veterinary career has opened the doors to many barns in Buffalo and Trempealeau County, where I tend to cattle, sheep, and goats. I frequently administer medicine to treat ill animals and work with farmers to develop preventative health options through proper animal nutrition and animal husbandry.
I started using organic treatments in my practice after a number of my customers switched their farm operations to become certified organic. I have come to fully support organic treatments and farming practices because of my experiences with how well they work. These organic practices are based on healthy soils and crops, which produce foods and feeds that are nutritionally rich. These nutrients then contribute to better health and stronger immune systems for the animals I treat. I have also become very interested in soils and farming biologically, which led to all of our cropland becoming certified organic.
My many years of conventional and organic veterinary practice has given me the experience to assist others in developing healthy and productive livestock herds. I am equally comfortable working with conventional and organic herds, and find that integrating the two can provide for the best outcomes. I greatly appreciate your business and look forward to sharing our products and knowledge with you.
