Today on The Country Jamie catches up with farmer Neil Heather who had a rather dramatic weekend being rescued from a flood.

On with the show:

Neil Heather:

Is a Paradise Valley farmer, 4km from Ngongotaha. Over the weekend he rescued his flooded neighbour, then they had to be rescued from the roof of his tractor!


Phil Duncan:

Monday's resident weather expert says following the weekend's rain deluge, we can expect a big high to dominate proceedings from mid-week to aid in the cleanup.

Steve Maharey:

We ask a former Vice Chancellor of Massey University and Labour Cabinet Minister if the current Labour Government is anti-farming or just progressing agriculture towards a sustainable future.

Tony Laker:

Courtesy of our travel partners here on The Country, we preview our Southern USA Farming and Sightseeing Tour which departs November 7 on a 15 day first-class coach tour of Houston, Louisville, Lexington, Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans.

David Broome and Don Nicolson:

Today's panel features two former Feds with a love of farming but differing political agendas. We leave them to it while we watch Lydia Ko win!
