Milk production up slightly

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Wisconsin dairy cows were about as busy as their national counterparts in September. New federal figures show that Wisconsin's milk output was 1-percent higher than the previous September, at just over 2.2-billion pounds. The state's increase was the same as the national jump -- and it was slightly lower than the 1.1-percent milk increase in the 23 major dairy producing states.

California, the nation's top milk producer, had a 0.4-percent increase in September, 6/10ths smaller than Wisconsin's.

The Badger State added 1,000 cows to its dairy herd, which now totals just over one-and-a-quarter million head. The state's production per cow went up by about 15 pounds, to 1,745.
