MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s milk production rose by almost three percent in July, compared to the same month a year ago.

The Badger State produced almost 2.33 billion pounds of milk last month, with a year-to-year increase of almost three times the national jump of 1.1 percent.

Wisconsin also made another gain on top-producing California, which posted a 3.5 percent decline in its milk production compared to the year before. The Golden State produced three-and-three-eighths billion pounds in July – the only state with a bigger output than Wisconsin.

All but of five of the nation’s 23 major dairy states saw increases in July. Arizona, Idaho, and Oregon joined California in having decreases. Utah was unchanged.
