Is Kirkland organic butter grass-fed or at least partially grass-fed?

It would be convenient to pick it up during a costco run, but not sure if it is a compromise or not.

@both: really? In this age of multinationals i just assumed that CAFOs would be spreading through NZ and Australia, too. I know that most people say "oh NZ lamb is the best" etc, i hear that all the time, too. But I just figured its antiquated. While prolly not as rampant as here in the US, wouldnt you have to assume that CAFO's higher productivity, lower cost, etc (the reasons they do it here) would motivate growers over there just like it has done here?

That's good to know, I'll hunt for Kerrygold next time I go to Costoco.

Good point- the big wholesale stores (Costco, BJ's, and Sam's) often have the same products. I don't know about near you, but in my area they always put it with the gourmet cheeses instead of in the butter section.

Certain countries such as Ireland and new Zealand that have laws in place don't always label their products as such.

All cows are partially grassfed or they cannot live long enough. It's the grain finishing that toxifies them

Kirkland Organic is not grassfed, however SAMs carries Kerrygold which is 100% grassfed

Costco in CA carries Kerrygold as well. Ask if your Costoc can get it too.

I do not know for certain but I would posit that if a product doesn't have "100% grass fed" etc printed boldly on the label that it is indeed NOT totally grass fed. It is such an added cost for the producer that they will always strive to advertise it on their product. So I would never assume that any dairy or beef or lamb is 100% grass fed if it doesn't explicitly state it.
