Iowa State Fair will Pair Butter Cow with Monopoly Game

Organizers of the Iowa State Fair are pairing the event's famous butter cow sculpture with another butter piece celebrating the Monopoly board game.

Officials say the accompanying piece, which changes every year, will this summer celebrate the game's 80th anniversary.

Sarah Pratt designs the butter cow each year as well as a second piece. She is expected to feature some famous Monopoly pieces alongside the game's main character, Rich Uncle Pennybags.

Monopoly was first commercially sold in the 1930s. The property trading game has been printed in more than 37 languages.

The Iowa Star Fair is scheduled Aug. 13-23 in Des Moines.
