Milk production continues to climb in America's Dairyland
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.
The average cow produced 15 more pounds, for a total of almost 1,600.
California, the nation's top milk producer, saw its production drop by 0.3 percent last month to around 3.3 billion pounds.
