Wisconsin's milk production rose 1.4 percent last month compared to a year ago.

Federal officials say it's about the same increase as the 23 major dairy states combined. Wisconsin added about 5,000 cows last month, reaching a total of about 1.25 million.

California, the nation's top milk producer, saw its production drop by 0.3 percent last month to around 3.3 billion pounds.

The Golden State added around 20,000 cows, but each animal made about 15 pounds less.

Wisconsin remains the No. 2 milk state, followed by Idaho, New York and Pennsylvania.
