A young 4-H member showing his prized calf at a county fair is the theme for this year's butter sculpture at the Pennsylvania Farm Show.

The sculpture, made from nearly 1,000 pounds of butter, was unveiled Thursday evening.

The artwork pays tribute to the 100th anniversaries of the Pennsylvania 4-H and Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs.

Jim Victor, of Conshohocken, began crafting the life-size design in mid-December and finished just in time for the Farm Show opening on Saturday.

At the close of the eight-day show, the butter will be given to a Juniata County dairy farm and put through a digester that will convert it to electricity to operate the farm.

The Farm Show runs through January 14. Admission is free and parking is $10.
