Listen: Dr Tim Mackle - 'Why can't we be proud of our farmers?'

New Zealanders are proud of the All Blacks so why can't we be proud of our farmers? That's the question Dr Tim Mackle posed on The Country Early Edition this morning.

The CEO of DairyNZ spoke to Dom George about New Zealand's world class dairy industry which he believes deserves more recognition than it currently receives.

Other topics in the interview include the water accord results which will be out in a few weeks, a bit of weather and how being green isn't just for St Patrick's Day.
