Factories Don't Produce Milk, Cows Do

The front-page article "Wisconsin - America's Dairyland No Longer," May 24, omits important facts necessary to understand the issues raised. Most fluid milk is produced near where it is consumed. Increased milk production in California reflects its burgeoning population. Wisconsin, with a much smaller population, exports much of its milk as cheese and butter. Even if overtaken by California in milk production, Wisconsin would still be America's dairyland, since it supplies a national market, while Califo rnia's dairy industry supplies primarily a local market.
