Who's Counting?

Our friends over at Ratio Juris blogged about a New York Times article reporting that California is taking over as the largest domestic cheese producer. The post is complete with a great picture of a cheesehead.

Wisconsin, according to a quote in the story, is now focused on quality, not quantity. As Ratio Juris contributor Lori Ringhand asks, "when the numbers no longer work in your favor, stop counting?"

If that's the case, there's going to be a lot of no-counting going on, as California continues to dominate agricultural production. Those of you who like numbers can check out the USDA's current USDA estimates of U.S. exports by State and commodity group based on each State's share of U.S. agricultural production.
