:) Fantastic. Let me know if you need any cheesy library research done. The
textbook "Guide to Cheese Identification, Classification, and Utilization",
perhaps? http://books.google.com/books?id=2jmO9hmr9WsC
Or possibly the more technical "Cheese: Chemistry, Physics and
Microbiology" http://books.google.com/books?id=vz-2Y7npqj0C

And don't forget that US dairy statistics are online:

Alternatively, I'd be happy to host another UC Davis edit-a-thon for
research purposes at some point, since we have a very extensive food [and
therefore cheese] collection :)
