Cheese production increases

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  For the second month in a row Wisconsin increased its cheese production at a slightly smaller rate than the nation as a whole.

New government figures show that the Badger State pumped out 243-and-a-half million pounds of cheese in October. That's an increase of 2-percent from the previous October -- just below the national increase of 2.1-percent.

Wisconsin remains the country's top cheese-maker, but second-place California continues to catch up. The Golden State boosted its cheese output by 5.7-percent -- almost two-and-a-half times the Wisconsin increase. California made 194-and-a-half million pounds in October, while the U-S made a total of 950-million pounds.

Wisconsin's production of Italian cheeses was up two-percent from the previous year.

American and Cheddar production both had decreases.
