Wisconsin's dairy cows keep making more milk than their national counterparts.

The Badger State's milk production rose 2.3 percent in December, compared to the same month the previous year.

Nationally, the increase was 1.5 percent in the 23 major dairy states.

Wisconsin made just more than 2 billion pounds of milk last month.

The state added about 5,000 cows during the month, for a total of 1.25 million. The average production per cow rose by 30 pounds to 1,630.

Wisconsin ranks second behind California which had another decrease in its milk output.

The Golden State made just more than 3.4 billion pounds last month, down 0.8 percent from the year before.

New York ranks third.
