PA Farm Show 2012 Butter Sculpture
PA Farm show was a good time as always. I am always impressed with the butter sculptures. This year it was the farm queen handing a ribbon to the little boy from 4-H who showed his calf. A 1,000 pounds of butter was used to make the sculpture. The butter was donated by the Land O Lakes in South Middeltown Township. The sculpture was done by the sculptor Jim Victor of Conshohocken,. He has also done Milton Hershey in a butter sculpture in the past.
When the farm show ended the butter was then donated to a local farm. The farm then takes the butter and transforms it into a gas which then is used to produce electricity to run the farm. How cool is that!
