UNDATED (WSAU) Wisconsin’s dairy cows worked at about the same pace as their national counterparts in March. Milk production rose 4.2-percent from a year ago in both Wisconsin and the nation as a whole.

California, the nation’s top milk producer, had a larger increase of 6.2-percent. The Golden State made 3.8-billion pounds of milk last month, while the Badger State made just over 2.3-billion pounds.

Wisconsin added 3,000 cows to its herd, while California added 2,500. Production per cow rose by about 70-pounds in Wisconsin to 1,845. But the average California cow pumped out 95 more pounds, or about 2,100. Milk production totaled about 17.7-billion pounds nationally, and about 16.5-billion in the 23 major dairy states.
