Kerrygold butter - vs- Organic Valley butter?

For some reason Organic Valley Butter does not taste very good to me. Anyone else have this same opinion? Kerrygold butter seems to taste much better...

I love Kiwi butter (I'm an Aussie). Westgold is GREAT, and very cheap here in Aus. Their salt-free butter is also fab for those of you who like bullet-proof coffee. :-) http://www.optimoz.com.au/blogs/news/6752684-grass-fed-butter-in-australia

Looks like I need to try the Kerrygold as well. I thought they were pretty much the same but from the sound of it, very different!

Thank you for that. I was under the impression that OV was 100% pastured. I just bought a pound of kerrygold today and am very satisfied!

It's delicious but it doesn't have the silky texture that Smorj or kerrygold has. I buy all three but generally I use the OV pasture butter to make ghee and use the other two for using whole. My 14 month old seems to like the kerrygold best too.

Their pastured butter(not available year round, btw) is a totally different animal than their regular butter. I use that and sjmor.

...its also the quality of the grass. Ireland just has good grass. A sweeter variety of grass. That's green all year round (Ireland's weather). So, the butter tastes "better" because it has a yummy sweet undertone that dairy in the US generally lacks...grass fed or not.

Try organic valley pasture butter. Big difference!

My understanding is there are differences between the two. KerryGold is grass fed 100%. Where as Organic Valley pastures their cows in the peak season but their cows are not 100% grass fed. They do feed their cows grass,hay and various organic grains.

Buy New Zealand butter. It is the best I am a New Zealander... I have not been paid to tell you this... but it is the law here... :-)

Just look at the difference in color. Kerry Gold is very yellow. All that wonderful vitamin A can only come from pastured cows. I sometimes will eat a little piece all by itself because it is so yummy.

You all do realise that kerrygold butter is not 100% grass fed! Yes the cows here eat mostly grass but not all the time! Check out the grass shortage in Ireland leading into the summer 2013. I use kerrygold because its great butter but nothing is ever as it appears to be esp concerning huge multinationals like glanbia etc. There branding is correct 'grass fed' but they also eat GM grain when needed.
