Wisconsin cows out-produce California 'cousins'
Wisconsin's milk production kept rising last month and that bucked a national trend.
The Badger State made almost 2.2 billion pounds of milk in March. That's up 1.6 percent from a year ago.
Production in the 23 major dairy states dropped 0.2 from the previous year. It totaled 15.2 billion pounds.
The 50-state average was down 0.3 percent, the first monthly decline since June of 2004.
