MADISON (WKOW) -- Good news for dairy farmers in Wisconsin and Minnesota. They had a very strong month in November.
Milk production in both states increased 5 percent compared to their output in November 2012. No other state showed as large an increase, and the increase nationwide was just 1 percent.
Wisconsin dairy farmers harvested 2.2 billion pounds in November. That was an increase of 99 million pounds from the same month a year earlier. In Minnesota, 739 million pounds were harvested in November, an improvement of 22 million pounds.
Wisconsin is the nation's second-leading producer of milk behind California.
