The famous butter cow is spinning at the State Fair. It's made of 850-pounds of butter and features a small boy milking a cow for the very first time. It took 76-hours for the sculptor to mold the display.
Sharon Bumann has been the artist for the past 12 ears, designing a Jersey Cow this year and a scene with a mother and her son, says Dairy Building Superintendent Marla Behrends.

The butter cow has been a staple at the fair since 1922. Officials say the butter that's used to make the cow is actually recycled, stored, and reused for up to four years.
