Butter, 800 pounds of it, arrives at NY State Fair

SYRACUSE, N.Y. The Great New York State Fair opens next Wednesday. That means it’s time to get the butter sculpture ready.

800 pounds of butter has arrived at the fairgrounds. The butter comes from Oatka Milk Products in Batavia, and Western New York dairy farmers. The butter sculpture will be unveiled next Tuesday.

After the state fair ends, the butter will be brought to a dairy farm in Livingston County, where it will be recycled and turned into energy.
