Ohio State Fair Butter Sculptures Unveiled


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A butter sculpture of five Ohio children and their beautiful animals stands alongside the iconic butter cow at the Ohio State Fair this year.

The American Dairy Association Midwest selected five participants showing their animals, including a lamb, a chicken and a pig “to reflect on the true meaning and traditions of the fair, which began in 1850.”

Made from approximately 2,530 pounds of butter, it is the largest cash cow on display at the Ohio State Fair to date and the first exhibit built in two years.

Over the weekend, the carvers began their assembly, constructing wooden and steel frames to support the weight of the butter. They worked with 55-pound blocks for hours layering, molding and smoothing butter in a 46-degree cooler inside the Ohio Expo Center dairy building.

Over the years at the Ohio State Fair, the American Dairy Association Mideast has honored great Ohioans and moments in Ohio history such as Brutus Buckeye and Urban Meyer after winning the National Football Championship from Ohio State in 2015, the Cleveland Cavaliers after winning the 2016 NBA Championship, and most recently in 2019, the Apollo 11 crew and the 50th birthday of Neil Armstrong, who became the first person to step on the moon.

The fair runs from Wednesday July 27 to Sunday August 7.
