It's the whole show in one go! Today The Country is brought to you by Labour Leader Andrew Little.

Little popped in to keep apolitical Jamie Mackay on the straight and narrow, whilst taking off with a few bottles of The Mackaiser...

On with the show: Andrew Little joins us in the studio. The Labour Party leader has just finished the Central Otago Rail Trail. We also ask him about his happy ending to 2016.

Farmstrong have a new ambassador - Sam Whitelock. We chat to him and ask about his new role and life after rugby.

Rabobank's Hayley Moynihan is up next. The GM for Country Banking reviews the farming year and takes a trip down memory lane back to 2001.

Panel time with Warwick Catto and Athol New! Today's panel features the 1995 Young Farmer of the Year and the current one and we ask them for their 2016 Ag Person of the Year.

Then we finish up the show with Andy Thompson. Today our West Coast cow cocky catches up with Jamie and Dom from Christchurch and endures yet another verbal pummelling from the lads.

It's the final show of the year for The Country. Thanks for listening and we'll catch you in 2017 on Monday January 16th!
