Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Celebrates 75-Year Member Savage-Leigh Holsteins of Knoxville, Md.
Reston, Virginia – Savage-Leigh Holsteins of Knoxville, Maryland, celebrated its 75th year of membership with Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association (MDVA) at the cooperative’s 102nd Annual Meeting held earlier this week.
“Congratulations to Savage-Leigh Holsteins on their 75th year of dairy farming with Maryland & Virginia,” said David Pool, MDVA’s First Vice-President during Maryland & Virginia’s Annual Meeting. “The Savage family is a prime example of our cooperative’s goal to support our dairy farm families to farm sustainably across generations.”
Savage-Leigh Holsteins is owned by Wayne and Cindee Savage. The farm made its start in 1939 by Wayne’s family including his father, uncle and brother Denny, who remains a MDVA producer on a separate farm. The farm started in Montgomery County, Maryland before Wayne and Cindee purchased the property in Knoxville in 1987.
