I belong to a FB Agriculture site   I thought this was interesting how California contributes so much to the US (and international for some products), and without a full allotment of irrigation water.  !!  I know each State has specialties, and I surely appreciate them, but CA has such a varied climate and soil profile that almost anything can be grown.

It says 1 in 5 cups of milk come from California. Hmm ... California does "special" things to it's milk, which is why it's a dollar or more expensive than over in AZ. Supposedly for our good. Just like we do special things to our gasoline which makes it more expensive than in AZ, though presumably not the same things that are done to the milk Rolling Eyes

I wonder if the milk that is sold to other states is allowed to be sold without the "special", price-raising qualities.

I have no idea what that "special" thing is. The only thing I can think of, is that there's a fee for everything related to the glass of milk. Testing for good pasteurization, commercial truck fees, commercial truck replacement if it is yeah many years old, a herd fee per head, an ear tag fee, an arm and an udder fee for gasoline and diesel, smog checks, independent truckers can't be contracted by a company, high state taxes, higher minimum wage.

Same glass of milk.

It's additional milk solids:

realcaliforniamilk.com wrote:...fluid milk produced and sold in California abides by higher nutritional standards, exceeding the federal standards for protein, calcium and other nutrients. California milk producers accomplish this by fortifying milk with nonfat milk solids, which improves taste and adds additional nutritional benefits.

https://www.realcaliforniamilk.com/real-california/fluid-milk

Actually, it's a mandated state standard:
