Behold, a half-ton butter sculpture celebrating Pennsylvania’s dairy industry.

This buttery masterpiece — the Farm Show butter sculpture – was carved from a half-ton of butter and depicts the Choose PA Dairy ‘Find Your Power’ campaign. The sculpture, a long-time Farm Show staple, encourages Pennsylvanians to support Pennsylvania’s dairy industry.

Dairy Heroes

Sponsored by American Dairy Association North East (ADANE), the sculpture features several individuals donning superhero capes, including an athlete, a soldier, a doctor, a firefighter, and a dairy farmer.

The sculptors began work in mid-December to craft the work of art from butter donated by Land O’ Lakes in Carlisle, Cumberland County.

The butter sculpture is on display in the Pennsylvania Farm Show’s Main Hall. Following the Farm Show, the butter will be moved to the Reinford Farm in Juniata County to be converted into renewable energy in the farm’s methane digester.

The Pennsylvania Farm Show is the nation’s largest indoor agricultural event, featuring 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,200 of which are animal competitions, plus 300 commercial exhibitors. The show runs January 5 – 12, 2019.
