Neillsville-Biggest Block of Cheese (1979)

The biggest block of cheese ever made was a (ink blotch) ton cheddar produced by Wisconsin cheese makers and displayed at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. It used 170,000 quarts of milk—43 years’ worth from the average cow, National Geographic World magazine says. A replica of that cheese is displayed in Neillsville.
