Unconventional energy sources are something environmentalists hold very close at heart. Therefore, there will probably be a lot of greenheads who will be pleased to hear that butter can also be used to satisfy energy demands.

reports that this 1000-pound (45.35 kilograms) butter sculpture was first revealed during this year's 97th Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg.

However, what interests us is the fact that, once this fair comes to an end, the butter will be made to meet the electricity demands of a dairy farm in Mifflintown, Pennsylvania.

Apparently, the sculpture will be mixed with manure and made to pass through a digester, which will see to it that it is converted into methane gas.

The energy and the electricity produced in this manner will supposedly suffice to power the farm for three days.
