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.
