Butter Bus Brings Biodiesel

Pennsylvania Farm Show Butter BiodieselAround 900 pounds of butter used in the Pennsylvania Farm Show's butter sculpture again will be turned into biodiesel to power tractors and other equipment.

This year's butter sculpture, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program and Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, depicts a dairy cow with three students boarding a school bus. Sculptor Jim Victor spent nearly 10 days sculpting the tribute to education. The butter was donated by Land O'Lakes Inc.

The famous butter display has a different theme every year. Last year's sculpture paid tribute to two historical icons, Benjamin Franklin and the Liberty Bell. And for the first time at the close of the show, the sculpture was transformed into fuel for the future.
