According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin produced 2.2 billion pounds of milk last month. That’s 97 million pounds more than in January 2009.
California, meanwhile, had a 2% drop over the same period. But it’s still comfortably in the lead, having produced 3.4 billion pounds last month.
The other states with large increases were Washington, which was also up 5%, and Minnesota, which was up 4%.
Nationwide, production dipped one percent to 14.8 billion pounds.
