Today on The Country, Rowena Duncum caught up with Australian correspondent Chris Russell, who was singing the praises of the Ord River.
On with the show:
We asked the President of Federated Farmers for his thoughts on the Howl of a Protest, winter grazing flights in Manawatu, how calving was tracking and what was discussed at the Feds AGM last week.
We asked the National Party leader what stood out for her, one year on from taking the reins. We also asked if she thought she had united the party, if she was worried about Act and whether she and her MPs would turn up to the Howl of a Protest?
