SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says South Dakota increased its milk production in June.

The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service says milk production in the state totaled 177 million pounds, a 5 percent increase over June 2013.

The average number of milk cows in June was 97,000. Milk production per cow averaged 1,825 pounds.


Is the USDA doing enough to accommodate small-scale direct-marketers of meat?
