HARRISBURG, Pa., -- On Thursday morning, the Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture and the American Dairy Association North East will unveil the 2017 PA Farm Show butter sculpture.

The unveiling will take place in the Main Hall of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center at 11 a.m.

The butter sculpture is made of more than 1,000 pounds of butter donated by the Land O' Lakes plant in Carlisle. Sculptors say it took nearly 20 days to create. The sculpture is stored in a 45-degree refrigerated glass case in the Main Hall.

The PA Farm Show opens to the public on Saturday.
