Conventional dairy products tend to come from animals raised in confinement in large facilities called CAFOs or “Confined Animal Feeding Operations.” CAFOs create a host of problems including:

• Air, land, and water pollution
• The unnecessary use of hormones, antibiotics, and other drugs
• Low-paid, stressful farm work
• The loss of small family farms
• Food with less nutritional value.

Cattle are ruminants, which means they evolved to eat grasses and other fiber-rich plants--not grain. Grains are no better for them than for us. Cattle fed grain often develop “subacute acidosis,” and to prevent this, the cattle are given constant, low-level antibiotics. When these are overused in livestock feeding, bacteria become resistant to them.

Excellent points!

I absolutely love the taste of KerryGold!
To me it is so much better than anything else I have tasted.

I get it at Trader Joe's and I also get it at Costco.
At Costco it is $6.79 for a 4 pack of salted KerryGold.
If I need unsalted I have to get it from Trader Joe's.

I like grass-fed butter

1) It tastes better
2) It has a better omega 3/6 balance

I buy both organic and organic grass-fed butter. I use the organic when it doesn't matter much, and put the grass-fed on things where I can really taste the butter.
