The annual butter sculpture was unveiled at the 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show with the help of Marilyn Hershey of Ar-Joy Farms in Cochranville, according to a report from FOX43.
Hershey, who is the secretary of the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association’s board of directors and a member of the American Dairy Association North East’s board of directors, was one of the speakers at last week’s unveiling ceremony.
This year’s sculpture depicts an athlete, a doctor, a soldier, a firefighter, and a dairy farmer donning superhero capes. It was introduced by Hershey, Gov. Tom Wolf, two-time Super Bowl champion Charlie Batch, and sculptors Jim Victor and Marie Pelton.
During her speech, Hershey thanked Gov. Wolf for being at the unveiling and for his commitment to the dairy industry.
“The butter sculpture sends a powerful message,” she said. “It’s a creative way to showcase the dairy industry and remind consumers how important the milk we produce is for their daily lives.”
