Productivity that leads to profitability...
Losch's Riverview Farm is focused on producing top quality goats that thrive on a forage based diet without massive grain supplementation. You may ask what exactly is "top quality"? Many producers focus solely on bloodlines as a measure of quality. We do not. Although we have an impressive listing of ennobled Boer genetics throughout our herd, we firmly believe that there is much more to a "top quality" animal, than a pedigree filled with ennoblements. Our focus is as follows:
We have participated in Penn State Buck test programs over the years & ranked in the upper 1/3 or better each year...........with various herd sires producing the kids on test. We also participate in Maryland's pasture based forage test. Several of our bucks have shown parasite resistance/resilience as they check fecal egg counts every 2 weeks on test. Although both programs are conducted quite differently, they both focus on productivity that leads to profitability.
