Anyone who knows a thing or two about the Ohio State Fair can tell you the mascot is Butters D. Cow. The beloved bovine has been a familiar face at the Ohio State Fair since his "birth" in 2002. In 2012, the mascot celebrated his 10th birthday with a big change – a new name! Since then, the former "Cowman" is now "Butters," a name chosen by Facebook fans in an online contest.

Throughout the duration of the Fair, Butters can be seen walking around and interacting with fairgoers and taking pictures with as many fans as possible. He will be out and about on each of the 12 days of the Fair.
