On today's show, Jamie Mackay caught up with Dr Bradley Case, who has just completed a study for Beef + Lamb New Zealand, which found out Kiwi sheep and beef farms are close to being carbon neutral.
On with the show:
Dr Bradley Case:
Is an academic from the Auckland University of Technology. This week in association with B+LNZ he released a ground-breaking new piece of independent research that shows the woody vegetation on New Zealand sheep and beef farms is offsetting between 63 per cent and 118 per cent of their on-farm agricultural emissions, meaning our farms are close to being carbon neutral.
Sir David Fagan:
Today marks the beginning of the competitive shearing season. We yarn to the world's greatest shearer at the Waimate Shears.
Jeremy Rookes and Stu Loe:
Today's panel features a couple of carbon-neutral cockies from Hawkes Bay and Canterbury as we chew the fat over farming and footy.
