Across all 50 states, milk production increased by 0.2 percent.

Once again the Upper Midwest states posted healthy gains, with Wisconsin up 1.3 percent, Minnesota up 1.8 percent and Michigan up 1.3 percent.

California, the country’s No. 1 milk-producing state, was down 0.2 percent.

This is an abbreviated milk production report from the USDA. Initially, the USDA suspended the report and several others in the wake of the automatic federal budget cuts known as sequestration. However, the department reversed its decision and announced that it would provide partial milk production estimates through September.
