Linney Named to Milk Commission

Leesburg resident Brian Linney is the newest member of Virginia’s Milk Commission. Gov. Ralph Northam made the appointment last week.

Linney is the COO of the Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association.

Created in 1934, the Milk Commission is charged with ensuring Virginians have a constant, available and reasonably priced supply of milk. It licenses all processors and distributors that sell fluid milk products in the commonwealth, preserves market stability and establishes monthly producer prices at competitive levels.

The panel is comprised of four consumer members, two milk producers, one milk processor-distributor and an administrator, who is an ex officio non-voting consumer member.
