Today on The Country, Jamie Mackay caught up with East Coast farmer Graeme Williams, who had written a poem to the Prime Minister called The Golden Goose.
On with the show:
The Minister of Agriculture (and good West Coaster) commented on the Buller flooding and said the government will not turn a deaf ear to the Groundswell protests.
The Buller District Mayor and local farmer updated the horrific flooding in Westport and around the Buller catchment.
The Resilient Farmer said farmers needed plenty of resilience in the face of flooding and a flood of regulatory demands from government.
The East Coast farmer (of sorts) and bush poet had put pen to paper in a plea to Jacinda Ardern to look out for farmers.
Monday's resident weather expert commented on some rather extreme weather of late and what we can look forward to in the coming week.
