(Springfield, IL) — Illinois’ latest butter cow spans 200 years. The folks with the Midwest Dairy Association yesterday unveiled the cow, which was made from 600 pounds of butter. The cow is a throwback to the grand champion cow of the 1818 State Fair. And because this is Illinois, the butter cow is standing next to one of Abraham Lincoln’s top hats. You can see the butter cow at the Dairy Building at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.
