Today on The Country, Jamie Mackay spoke to Minister for Climate Change James Shaw about the Government's freshwater policy announcement.
On with the show:
Who is National's new Agriculture spokesman? We ask him.
Is a Waitomo sheep and beef farmer, the chief executive of manufacturing company Steelfort and the chairman of the Todd Muller fan club!
Lashes does the business and once again we head to the top drawer for Farmside Footy to yarn to well known Hawkes Bay farmer (or is he?).
We ask the Green Party co-leader and Minister for Climate Change whether he could work with Todd Muller in a coalition government and we get his thoughts on today's freshwater policy announcement.
Our Australian correspondent, and long-standing Eels fan, is all fizzed up about the NRL kicking off tonight plus we yarn about an imported chip glut, the price of wool halving and a pest prickly pear plant now producing medicinal fruit.
