Wisconsin is in second-place as a milk producing state. Wisconsin remains well behind California and well ahead of third-place Idaho.

Idaho's dairy farmers produced 1.2 billion pounds, which is about half of Wisconsin's yield.
Wisconsin and California together produce more than one-third of the nation's milk.
