Visitors to the Illinois State Fair can watch as the finishing touches are put on the popular butter cow display in the Dairy Building. Sculptor Sharon BuMann is back at the fair this year, molding and creating a scene out of about 900 pounds of butter.
She describes the display, which is housed on a rotating platform in a glass cooler.
Bumann will finish up the sculpture as the public watches, and is scheduled to be finished by Tuesday. The Illinois State Fair runs through the 19th in Springfield.
