Butter sculpting begins at State Fair

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Work on sculpting the butter cow is underway at the Iowa State Fair.  The yearly favorite at the fair is being sculpted by Sarah Pratt and Todd Lyon inside a 40 degree cooler. 

This year's fair also features a 40 year anniversary tribute to the moon landing of Apollo 11.  The entire display will use more than a thousand pounds of butter, all recycled from previous statues. 

The Iowa State Fair runs August 13-23.
