2017 NY State Fair Butter Sculpture

The butter sculpture at the New York State Fair is coming down, but it's being recycled.

The statue of three state troopers with a calf and a child is made with roughly 700 pounds of butter. Butter statues are an annual attraction at the State Fair in Syracuse, which ran through Labor Day.

On Tuesday, the statue will be dismantled for transportation to Noblehurst Farms in Livingston County. The butter will be recycled in a methane digester to help create electricity.

The farm is working with the American Dairy Association North East and Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners.
