Wisconsin dairy cows continue busy production pace

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin dairy cows remain busier than others around the country.

New federal numbers show that the Badger State's milk production rose by 1.8 percent in June, compared to a year earlier. The national increase was lower at 1.5 percent.

California, the nation's top milk producer, had another drop in production of 0.8 percent.

Wisconsin is the nation's Number-two milk state, producing 2.3 billion pounds last month. California made just under 3.5 million. Third-place Idaho held steady at almost 1.2 billion pounds.

The USDA normally tells us monthly cow numbers, and average production figures per cow -- but those numbers won't gathered until fall, due to the federal budget sequester.
