A 1,000-pound calf is on display at the Pennsylvania Farm Show - but this is no ordinary calf.
ABC27 reports Jim Victor of Conshocken crafted the calf with butter. After beginning work on the creation in the middle of last month, Victor unveiled the fruits of his labor Thursday evening so all could gaze at his handiwork. The calf pays homage to the Pennsylvania 4-H and the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs, both of which are marking their 100th anniversaries.
"Pennsylvania has a rich agricultural tradition, and this sculpture pays tribute to the root of the industry - our young people and the educational programs and county fairs that give them opportunities to grow and learn," said Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, according to the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association.
None of the butter will go to waste when the farm show closes next Saturday. Rather, the butter will be sent to dairy farm in Juniata County, sent through a digester and the byproduct of electricity will help the farm function.
The 96th Pennsylvania Farm Show is set to open on Saturday.
