COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Officials unveiling butter sculptures of a cow and calf at the Ohio State Fair are ready to share names chosen for the pair after a social media contest.

The American Dairy Association Mideast invited people to submit names on Twitter using a specific hashtag. The winning names were slated to be revealed along with the display Tuesday, a day before the fair opens.

Some people submitted references to two Cleveland sports stars, the Cavaliers' LeBron James and the Browns' Johnny Manziel, with suggestions like "LeButter James" or "Johnny Mooziel." In a nod to Ohio State's colors, someone proposed "Scarlett and Grace." Other nominees included "Buttercup" and "Lucy and Ethel."

The butter cow sculpture goes back more than a century at the state fair, which runs through Aug. 3 in Columbus.
