Rabobank Best of The Country - 18th March 2017

It's the best of the best with Jamie Mackay and our mates at Rabobank. Jamie picks his favourite interviews from the week that was for your entertainment.

This week's interviews were: Mahe Drysdale: We caught up with a New Zealand sporting legend at the NZ Rural Games in Palmerston North to find out how he fared in the gumboot throwing in comparison to Dame Valerie Adams.

Jim Hopkins: In an outstanding piece of oratory this rural raconteur gets serious about telling townies that farmers are their friends not their enemies.

Winston Peters: The New Zealand First leader freely shares his wisdom about dairy prices, Russia, Iran, superannuation and tax cuts but is much more reticent about coalition partners.

Linda Samuelsson: We catch up with an AgResearch scientist who was one of the guest speakers at the 2017 Sheep Milk New Zealand conference in Palmerston North as a part of NZ Agrifood Investment Week.

Blake Holgate: Is a Rabobank animal proteins analyst who produced a report on China's animal proteins import outlook and what implications this has for New Zealand beef and lamb.

Bill English: The PM ponders the eventual effect of another rise in US interest rates, ownership of water and he denies the Nats are ignoring the regions.
