California is the nation’s leading fluid milk producer and a leader in sustainable dairy practices. The state also produces more butter and nonfat dry milk than any other state and is the second-largest producer of cheese and yogurt. Dairy products made with California milk can be identified by the Real California Milk seal, which certifies that the products are made with milk produced on California dairy farms.
The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is funded by the state’s dairy families and is one of the largest agricultural marketing boards in the United States.
