Wisconsin's dairy cows outshine peers in production nationwide
Wisconsin's dairy cows made more milk in October than a year ago, while farmers nationally made less.
Last month, 2.1 billion pounds of milk were produced in the Badger State, up 3.5 percent from the year before.
But production dropped by over 1 percent in the 23 major dairy states, to around 14 billion pounds.
Wisconsin's dairy herd grew by 5,000 from a year ago, to just more than 1.25 million head.
