Five Fun Facts Friday - Wisconsin Cheese

I'm starting a new series of posts called:  Five Fun Facts Friday.  Today, it's on Wisconsin Cheese.   Here goes:

1.  Wisconsin cheese makers produce over 600 varieties, types and styles of cheese, runner up comes in second with 250 varieties.  

2.  90 % of Wisconsin's milk is made into cheese and 90% of that famous Wisconsin cheese is sold outside the state's borders.  

3.  A one ounce slice of Wisconsin Cheese contains about the same amount of protein as an 8 ounce glass of milk.

4.  In 1921, Wisconsin became the first state to establish cheese grading standards to ensure consistent quality and flavor.

5.  It takes ten pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
