Laurie Savage: The Dairy Industry

Laurie Savage and her family own and operate Savage-Acres Farm outside of Dickerson, MD. Along with her husband, Kevin, and his brother, they milk 100 cows twice a day, every day. On a 1,000 rented and owned acreage in the county’s Agricultural Preserve, they raise corn, hay, soybeans and small grains. The farm has been operational and in the family for over 75 years. Laurie gave an engaging presentation on the life of a dairy farmer and the challenges involved. Her farm delivers milk to a variety of suppliers, including Giant Food here in Montgomery County. Their farm is one of only four dairy operations in the county.
