Naming contest for Ohio State Fair butter bovines

Written by 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - How now, butter cow?

The American Dairy Association Mideast is running a contest for the most creative name for the butter cow and calf display at the upcoming Ohio State Fair, utilizing social media.

Starting Monday, people for a week can submit entries on Twitter using the hashtag (hash)ButterCowNameGame.

The butter cow sculpture goes back more than a century at the state fair, which this year runs July 23 to Aug. 3 in Columbus.

The person with the winning name will be invited to the sculpture unveiling July 22, and will get a prize pack with free fair tickets and other items.

An early nominee Monday morning played off the return of pro basketball star LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers: "LeButter James."
