SPOILER ALERT! We know that many people don't like to see or hear about the annual butter sculpture at the Great New York State Fair until they can see it for themselves in person. If you don't want to know what the sculpture is, don't read this story or watch the video above!
SYRACUSE – The butter sculpture at the Great New York State Fair was revealed on Tuesday morning.
This year marks the 50th year of the American Dairy Association North East Butter Sculpture. The theme is, “Your milk comes from a good place,” and it pays tribute to hard-working dairy farmers.
The sculpture features a farmer giving milk directly from his dairy farm to a shopper in the grocery aisle.
In New York State, 99 percent of dairy farms are family-owned and -operated, and the state ranks third in the nation for milk production.
The 800-pound sculpture was created over a 10-day period by artists from Pennsylvania. You can check out the sculpture in the dairy building at the Great New York State fair, which runs from Aug. 22 through Sept. 3.
