Can you elaborate on this, as I'd like to know what you mean about Irish butter and grass-fed beef.

Are you new to this site? To primal? I thought that awareness of the reasons for grassfed beef and butter from pastured cows was foundational to primal.

In the US grassfed beef is also sold at a premium because conventional US beef is fed corn, which is not something cows are supposed to eat. In other countries, grass fed beef is more the norm, I believe, and so is easier to find and afford. Of course, in the US corn is so cheap one can never be sure the beef one buys hasn't been fed it. I tend to buy grassfed imported from Australia, which is cheaper than the locally grown stuff, but I am not sure why.
If you need more about WHY to eat these, read Mark's book and look through the boards. A lot has already been said about this.
