Wisconsin Boosts Cheese Production
Would you say that 226.3 million pounds is a lot of cheese? That amount of queso just emerged from the Badger State this April. And that is a 3.9% increase in cheese production from April 2011.
Dairy plants throughout Wisconsin continue to produce more cheese than year-ago levels. The USDA reports that the state's dairy plants putout 226.3 million pounds of cheese during the month--which was up 3.9 percent compared to the same month in 2011, but was 4.7 percent less than March 2012
