I wonder if the K2 doesn't vary wildly with season. I know that the butter is different colours depending on the time of year. Hence why high vitamin butter oil is only from cows fed on summer pasture.

Some people on here have mentioned they use salted Kerrygold. From a paleo perspective, does it matter if you use salted or unsalted Kerrygold? Besides for baking, is there a benefit of one over the other?

There is more beta-carotene in the Spring grass, which impacts the color of the butter. Fresh grass is also nutritionally more dense. Now that we're nearing the end of the good growing season, the taste of butter will change.
