DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa State Fair will feature a "Field of Dreams" butter sculpture this year along with its iconic butter cow.

Fair officials say the sculpture will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Iowa-based movie filmed at the Lansing Family Farm in Dyersville.

The molded butter sculpture will depict aspects of baseball and Iowa's farmlands. It will join the butter cow in a 40-degree cooler.

The fair will also offer a new interactive exhibit called "Farm with Us." It will include bushels of corn and soybeans for people to touch and an interactive digital screen.

This year's fair will be held Aug. 7-17.
