Typically, the Ohio State fair has the butter cow sculpture and additional butter sculptures on display, using a total of 2,000 pounds of butter. But with no fair goers this year, the DIY Butter Cow Contest is back for its second year to get Ohioans involved and have a little fun.
The contest began July 18 and participants are encouraged to use two pounds of butter, some wire and simple kitchen tools to create their own smaller version of a butter cow.
The American Dairy Association Mideast is putting on the contest. The winner gets a Yeti cooler to keep their creation cold and fresh.
Participants should use #BuildYourButterCow and tag ADA's Facebook or Twitter to enter.
The contest runs through Aug. 8. Visit their website for more tips and tricks to create your own butter cow.
