HARRISBURG, Pa. – Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding helped unveil the Farm Show butter sculpture this week. It’s carved from a half-ton of butter and depicting the Choose PA Dairy ‘Find Your Power’ campaign. The sculpture, a longtime Farm Show staple, encourages Pennsylvanians to support our state’s dairy industry.
“People from across the commonwealth look forward to Farm Show each year, and this sculpture is one of the most beloved parts of this annual event,” said Gov. Wolf. “But it’s more than just butter. It’s a way for us to honor our dairy industry in a fun and memorable way – an industry that we work hard to promote and support year-round.”
The sculpture shows several individuals in superhero capes, including an athlete, a soldier, a firefighter, and a dairy farmer.
The Pennsylvania Farm Show is the country’s biggest indoor agricultural event, featuring 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,200 of which are animal competitions, plus 300 commercial exhibitors. The show runs January 5 – 12, 2019.
