California is the nation’s leading milk producer. It also produces more butter and nonfat dry milk than any other state. The state is the second-largest of cheese and yogurt. Dairy products made with Real California milk can be identified by the Real California Milk or Real California Cheese seal, which certifies that the products are made exclusively with milk produced on California dairy farms.
