    A lot of people choose organic or raw. Im too poor to spend 6.00 on butter so I just get salted w/o antibioltics or hormones

    Yeah, there's a pastured option out there but it's pretty spensive if you cook with butter a lot.

    Have you thought about going the ghee route instead of butter? Most people tend to go with raw/organic unsalted I believe.

    Ghee is the most primal butter due to lack of casein but in my opinion it also tastes horrible. I would rather cook with coconut oil or animal fat and the only thing I use butter for is on some steamed vegetables when the meat I'm eating is too lean. I think I have a casein sensitivity though so butter might be out. Everyone should get a basic food sensitivity test in my opinion.

    I buy KerryGold Irish Butter made from pastured cows. I can't find raw butter anywhere and this is the closest I can get to good quality butter and the price is comparable to other organic (not necessarily from pastured cows). And I make ghee with it at home.

    Butter is actually quite easy to make at home if you have a blender or food processor. If you can find quality heavy cream you can make your own.

    I've also been using Irish butter and organic. I went to find Ghee yesterday, it was pretty pricey. I'm going to stick with plain old butter.

    @smitzma, the procedure to make ghee at home was discussed in this thread, in case you are interested in making it at home:
