This week on The Best of The Country, Jamie Mackay caught up with Rabobank's Asia Pacific Strategist Michael Every, for an interesting chat about how the US-China trade war could affect Kiwi farmers.
This week's top interviews are:
The chief executive of Fonterra does not try to sugar-coat some disastrous numbers released to the market this morning - an asset write-down of $820-860 million, a financial loss of $590-675 million and the payment of no dividend for the FY19. The only good news is that the forecast milk price remains unchanged.
