The Country Today - Mean Girls edition

It's the whole show in one go! Today The Country is brought to you by two Mean Girls, Jamie Mackay and Dominic George. Dairy farmer Marcella Bakker is looking for her Prince Farming on social media so the lads thought they'd interview her on today's show. Alas, she is only looking for TV coverage so Dom and Jamie have maturely decided to play slightly catty songs in her honour. Sigh.

On with the show: First up we have weather with Phil Duncan. Jamie and Dom encourage our weather expert (and Auckland's most eligible bachelor), to head south to the Waikato to try and woo Marcella.

Next up is Dr William Rolleston. The President of Federated Farmers addresses the controversial issues of stock theft and water quality.

Today's panel is Doug Avery and Dr Doug Edmeades. Avery, an inspirational Marlborough farmer and Edmeades, a Hamilton-based soil scientist share their opinion on the topic du jour - water quality.

Let's get healthly with Bernie McKone. Today our Men's Health Expert tackles the ticklish issue of hay fever with a great deal at

Rabobank's horticulture analyst Marc Soccio takes a look at the 'New World Order' for players in the fresh fruit and vegetable produce game.

Finally it's time for our favourite Aussie Chris Russell. This week he ponders the promotion of lamb, 'pastured' eggs and a helping hand for struggling dairy farmers.

Remember everyone, hell hath no fury like a Dom and Jamie scorned!
