The Country Today - water ownership edition

It's the whole show in one go! Today The Country is all about water and more specifically - who owns it?

On with the show: Bill English: The PM ponders the eventual effect of another rise in US interest rates, ownership of water and he denies the Nats are ignoring the regions.

Richard Loe: We head to day one of the Central Districts Field Days at Feilding where we find a former All Blacks hard man wearing his Safer Farms hard hat.

Blake Holgate: Is a Rabobank animal proteins analyst who produced a report on China's animal proteins import outlook and what implications this has for New Zealand beef and lamb.

Joe Wheeler and Ben Smith: Courtesy of Farmlands - fans of farming and footy - we preview this week's Super Rugby with a hard case Highlander and the All Blacks vice-captain.

Chris Russell: Our Australian correspondent comments on the continuing rise in wool prices and some early progress in the war on rabbits.

James Shaw: We ask the Green Party co-leader who owns the water and who should be paying for it plus we ask him about John Key's legacy.
