MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- July was another good month for Wisconsin's dairy farmers.
The latest federal statistics say the state produced 2.3 billion pounds of milk in July. That's 3 percent better than its production in July 2012.
National production rose 1 percent, to 15.7 billion pounds.
Wisconsin remains the No. 2 milk-producing state, well behind California and well ahead of third-place Idaho.
California produced nearly 3.4 billion pounds of milk in July, but that was a 4 percent drop from the previous July. Idaho's dairy farmers harvested 1.2 billion pounds, about half of Wisconsin's yield.
Wisconsin and California combine to produce more than one-third of the nation's milk.
