COLUMBUS, Ohio — A butter sculpture at this year’s Ohio State Fair includes the traditional cow and calf along with four student-athletes and a 6-foot-tall (1.8-meter-tall) bottle colored to look like chocolate milk.
The American Dairy Association Mideast says the sculpture unveiled Tuesday salutes chocolate milk as the official drink of the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
It’s the first time the butter sculpture has included color. Cocoa was added for the bottle.
The bottle stands among four athletes representing football, tennis, softball and soccer.
