New cooler to prevent butter cow’s meltdown

State Fair icon will also be in twitterverse


Ohio’s popular butter cow will be chilling in a new home this year.

According to a press release, the sculpture will once again represent more than 268,000 real dairy cows as part of the 2013 Ohio State Fair. For the first time in decades, the sculpture will be housed in a new cooler. The butter cow will be unveiled July 23.

Attendants of the fair will also get to interact with the buttery bovine by following @OHDairyFarmers on Twitter and using the hashtag #ButterCow. The fair runs from July 24 to August 4 at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus.
