Have you seen the BUTTER COW???

There are many attractions at the Illinois State Fair that make the fair an exciting place to be! One attraction has been around for more than 70 years, but still offers something new every year. The Butter Cow is a must see State Fair attraction. 

Every year the cow is sculpted by Sharon BuMann. Every year she spends two days in a refrigerated cooler sculpting the cow out of about 600 pounds of unsalted butter. Here's a fun fact:  The butter used to sculpt the cow is recycled and used to make other sculptures!

This delightful attraction is located in the Dairy Building. When you come out to the fair this year make sure you take a picture of the Butter Cow and share it on social media.  Use the hashtag #ISawTheButterCow
