Wisconsin's hard-working cows doing better than California's 'happy cows'
Wisconsin dairy farms pumped out more milk in August, while California, the nation's top producer, saw its production drop by almost 2 percent.
The Badger State made just more than 2 billion pounds of milk last month, up 0.9 percent from the year before.
Wisconsin's herd grew by 4,000 cows, to a total of 1.25 million. And each animal was more efficient, making 10 more pounds than last August for an average of 1,655.
