    “We’ve got a solar project,” said Redding. “We’ve got some energy saving measures that are inside, in terms of water, water usage and lighting.”


    Redding says the famous butter sculpture also has a new showcase.

    “It allows us to really have a 360-degree view,” he said. “It’s going to be placed in a new location this year. Same hall, but inverted a little bit to allow us to bring in the other agriculture commodities around it.”


    Redding says the largest indoor agricultural exhibition in the US will once again include a sheep-to-shawl contest, high school rodeo and a fully stocked food court.
