    Why does the Kerrygold butter at TJ say it's made from grass fed cows but the one from WF doesn't? Are they the same thing?

    If it's true Kerrygold, it is from grass-fed cows. I don't think Ireland has any other kind - all their cows are free and happy! :-D

    It says grassfed on it.

    Now Costco has 17.6 oz containers of soft Kerrygold butter; it says it's from grass-fed cows. I think I paid 6-something for it.

    I'm lucky, we have enough farmers markets and natural food stores in the DC area that I can buy grass-fed butter directly from the farmer, or with only one middleman. What always kills me is how YELLOW the stuff is.

    I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Cows are FAT. They are lucky we domesticated them, and they don't live on the African plains.

    Cows are BIG for sure.. I think grass-fed are generally leaner though. I lived in Ireland for a good few years, spent a lot of time on my then bf's farm - lots of cows, sold for beef, all grass fed and all seemed pretty happy to me - although i admit it was hard for me to see them on their way to the butcher. in hindsight I probably shouldn't have named them.....
