Record cheese output

This article was originally published in Foodnews

CALIFORNIAN cheese production broke all records last year, according to the state's Department of Food and Agriculture. In 2006, California produced more than 2.20 million lbs of cheese, 3% higher than the 2.14 million lbs produced in 2005, itself a record year. Cheese production in the state has nearly doubled in the last decade. Milk output, too, reached record levels in 2006, at 38.8 billion lbs, 3.4% more than in 2005. Nearly half the state's milk goes to making cheese (it takes 10lbs of milk to make 1lb of cheese). California itself produces nearly 25% of all the USA's cheese, and houses several of the world's largest cheese plants.
