Posted: Aug 20, 2019 11:07 AM

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - "Milk. Love What's Real" is the theme of the 51st Annual Butter Sculpture at the New York State Fair.

The sculptures feature a grandfather and child dunking cookies in milk and a young couple sharing a milkshake. The sculpture illustrates how our love for real dairy connects many cherished moments in our lives. The American Dairy Association North East Butter Sculpture, sponsored by Wegmans, also depicts the important role that real cow's milk plays in our most memorable family experiences.

"When we create meals, we create memories and real dairy is there," said Joel Riehlman of Venture Farms in Fabius, N.Y. "From the ice cream at a child's birthday party, to our cheese pizza on Friday night, to the milk in our lattes every morning, milk plays an important role in our everyday lives."

The Sculpture was constructed over a 10-day period by artists Jim Victor and Marie Pelton of Conshohocken, Pennsylvania using more than 800 pounds of butter from O-AT-KA Milk Products in Western New York. This is the 17th consecutive year Victor and Pelton have created the Butter Sculpture at the New York State Fair.
