All the shops in Norway are empty of butter, its been going on for a few weeks now.

The producers of butter says its because there is not enough milk because of bad cow fodder. The bad fodder is supposedly because of all he rain that killed most of our crop this year.

But still there is plenty of milk and other diary products in the shelf, so how can there be a milk shortage? It's the same companies that make butter and sell milk. I smell a rat here, but I cannot see clearly what the conspiracy (if any) is...

Any ideas?

Butter is made from cream which is only a small proportion of the milk.

There may be enough milk to supply the milk, but not to make the butter.

Same thing is happening in Finland. They claim that this is because there is new trend called "Low-carbohydrate diet". That diet consumes lot of butter and more than we produce.

Coffee shortage in some places, now butter shortage. It's time to go back to the old days when we whipped up our own butter and grew our own beans.

I think you are right.

Also, if indeed there are plenty of other dairy products in the store, and you are desperate for butter, you can churn it from sour cream or from heavy cream. I've done it on a few occasions and I liked it.

Otherwise, use vegetable spread. We have that "Olivio" product in the US which pretty darn good!

That's odd... I decided to get my produce out of the fridge with which I cover my sandwiches, which we call 'butter' (margerine)

It contains: Water, 37% vegetable oils and fatts, calcium lactate, emulsifier, sunflower lecithine, salt, corn starch, preservatives, alimentary acid, milk aroma, colourings, several added vitamines...

There is 0% dairy in it. Note that the 'milk' is just milk aroma.

So, altough real butter is of course made from milk entirely, margerine products should be available..

I think the ones giving you this information are not well informed or just made something up.

Margarine : Plant oil (more likely Palm oil ) that got chimicaly transformed :

Plant oil , comparably to animal fat , is liquid a 37*c , so , to become solid , we had to insert one carbon atom into the chimical formula of the vegetal oil to make it flat (3D molecular agencement), making a new unseen molecule that your organism isn't ready (evolutionary) to digest it .

so , stop using margarine , butter is more healthy for you (with moderation)

Because my country is ran by (evil?) socialists that tax imports beyond belief to protect the local market. The Right Side here is screaming for the import taxes to be lowered on butter right now.

Just remember butter is the easiest thing to make and homemade cant be beat as you can sweeten, salt it, put cinnamon or herbs into it and there are no preservatives.

I just take whole cream and put it on the blender for a few seconds, till it sticks then place in a bowl and hand mix on high until the butter milk separates, then set into a strainer and squeeze into a ball or whatever shape I choose.

It only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish.

Good luck Norway is a beautiful Country and the people are amazing.

We have also no Butter, since one Month!

They said there is not enough High Grade Milk to produce Butter.

This is already the second Time since 2008!

For Christmas Cakes i have to use NZ-Butter for 800 Yen a 200 gram

Fukushima alone can`t be the reason because the big majority of our Cows
are living in Hokkaido where they have beautiful Houses!

Norway and Japan- Hand in Hand we will fight this Christmas Disaster!

Maybe created by the Mossad or the Taliban to fight our Ritual?

I believe it is the kinder-gentler NWO that is keeping fats off the shelf. No strike that. Fake butter is worse for you. Trans fats are bad. Simple fats like butter are needed. So really "they" are limiting you proper nutrition. Might want to invest in some almonds. Good fats there. Oh....And I have seen almond butter, so you could spread it to. Never tried it though.
