Marla Moo is the other Illinois State Fair cow that is a lot less famous than the buttercow. Visitors just don’t seem to appreciate Marla as much as the butter sculpture. Depending on which way you enter the Illinois Dairy Building – you may or may not see Marla.
“Marla Moo is the brainchild of Kevin Behrends. He created her as a 4H Project a couple years ago … and would you believe he was only 16 years old when he welded her into life.”
“I spoke with Marla Behrends, superintendent of the Dairy Building, who was incredibly friendly and shared the story of this mysterious mooser. Marla is Kevin’s aunt and the sculpture’s namesake.”
