If you’re a fan of professional sports, the Pennsylvania Farm Show‘s butter sculpture is a half-ton masterpiece.
This year’s theme features mascots Gritty from the Philadelphia Flyers, Swoop from the Philadelphia Eagles and Steely McBeam from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It’s a gesture the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture explained as encouraging “Pennsylvanians to be a fan of Pennsylvania dairy and give a cheer to the more than 6,200 dairy farmers of the commonwealth.”
The Farm Show opens this Saturday, and the sculpture will be in the Main Hall through Jan. 11.
According to the PA Department of Agriculture, the butter, originally scrap butter, will be moved to a farm in Juniata County where it will be converted into renewable energy after the show.
