It's the whole show in one go!

Today The Country is brought to you by the music of Rod Stewart because his beloved Celtic suffered a horrific loss in the Champions League. Bad luck Rod...

On with the show: First up we have some weather with NIWA's Ben Noll.

He says we've gone from the one of the coldest spring days on record last week to the prospect of one of the warmer ones later this week.


Today's panellists are Jane Smith and Nadine Porter.

They look back on yesterday's water quality debate and go in search of 500 missing dairy cows.

Labour leader Andrew Little follows the panel.

He's in Canada and is lucky enough to have Jamie Mackay offer him a descriptive recipe on how to win next year's election.

Peter Newbold is our resident Rural Real Estate expert and the GM of PGGW Real Estate.

He says lifestyle blocks are the hot ticket on the market at the moment.

Finally it's time for Andy Thompson.

Today our West Coast cow cocky says urban New Zealand also needs to take a good hard look at how it treats our waterways.
