When it comes to butter sculptures, the Ohio State Fair doesn't mess around.

  • This year's edition is the largest in fair history and pays tribute to Ohio's agricultural heritage.

By the numbers: It took 600 hours of sculpting and 2,530 pounds of butter to make the likenesses of five young farmers and their animals.

  • The case is kept at a cool 46 degrees.

State of play: You can find this sculpture inside the Dairy Products Building at the fair, which opens Wednesday and runs through Aug. 7.
