Is there Any k2 in Grain Fed Animals?

I'm wondering is there any vitamin k2 at all in conventionally-raised or grain-fed animals? If so, where?

Also, even though the conversion factor might not be as good, I'd still make sure to get k1 in your diet, like Turnip greens or kale or something.

Isn't most of the k2 in cheese k2-mk7 not mk4, which is made from the bacteria that ferment the cheese?

I just mean meat that you would find at a grocery store I suppose. Any animal products. Im trying to find out if there's something I can just go to a grocery store to buy with high vitamin k2 in it.

It's in the cheese made from their milk.

Propably, if you eat the whole animal, like kidneys, marrow, salivary glands? I wonder if its near the tongue, or somewhere else? Organs are like CPU the of the animal, they have everything. Muscle meat is just a casing ;)

I can't prove it, but I'm under the impression that the richer the k1 in the diet, the richer the k2 concentrations in the animals. It might then depend on the feed the cattle are given. Sorry I don't have cites on this, the information for k2 in food is pretty sparse. Good question though.

There's so little testing for K2 done, hard to make comparisons when there's no data available.

What do you mean by "grain-fed" as well? There's really only a problem when concentrated rations replace forage in animal diets. Very much akin to junk food replacing real food in human diets.
