Michael Jackson is getting a new tribute. And it's in butter.

Iowa State Fair organizers announced Tuesday that in addition to their annual butter cow statute, there would be one of the pop music icon. Jackson died Thursday at age 50.

Both the butter sculptures will be on display in a 40-degree cooler throughout the fair from Aug. 13 to 23 in Des Moines.

Organizers say Jackson has been to the Iowa State Fair. He performed there twice with the Jackson Five in 1971.
