Wisconsin cheese production grew by one-point-three percent in June, compared to one year ago. But for the third month in a row, the state’s increase is much smaller than the national growth of three-point-two percent. The U-S-D-A says Wisconsin factories made almost 271-million pounds of cheese in June, still the nation’s largest while second place California had a two-tenths-of-one-percent drop in its production to 207-million pounds. Wisconsin made a little more than 26-percent of the national total, about the same percentage as the preceding month. The Badger State had a solid four-point-one-percent increase in its Italian cheese output in June, but that was more than offset by a four-point-four-percent drop in Cheddar.
