UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin cheese production is up, but at a slightly lower pace than the nation as a whole. New U-S-D-A figures show that the Badger State made almost 249-million pounds of cheese in March. That's an increase of 0.9% from the same month a year ago. Nationally, cheese production was up by 1% in March, to 964-million pounds.

Wisconsin is still the national leader in cheese, but second-place California had a much larger increase in March -- 7.6-percent to around 206-million pounds.

Wisconsin increased its Italian cheese production by two-percent -- but its cheddar output was down 13-percent, while American cheeses were down seven-percent.
