Wisconsin continues to produce more cheese, at a time when the national output is falling. Officials said the Badger State made almost 250-million pounds of cheese in March, two-point-seven percent more than the same month a year ago. Nationally, production dropped by two-tenths of a percent to 954-million pounds. Second-place California saw its output decline by two-point-four-percent in March, to almost 195-million pounds. Third-place Idaho and fourth-place New York also produced less. Almost one-and-a-half percent more American and Italian cheeses were made in March throughout the country. However, the increases were offset by declines in Swiss and a few specialty cheeses.
