The Country Today - John Wright edition

It's the whole show in one go! Today The Country is brought to you by cricket legend John Wright who has kindly sent us a copy of his new album Red Skies.

On with the show: Dr Jacqueline Rowarth: The chief scientist of the Environmental Protection Authority debunks claims that New Zealand will need to slash pastoral stock numbers by up to 35% to get GHG emissions down to zero by 2100.

Peter Nation and Barbara Kuriger: Today's panel ponders the issues of the day and features the chief executive of Fieldays and the MP for Taranaki King Country.

Blair McLean: Our resident viticulture expert talks about a challenging summer, the onset of harvest and the chance to win with our Winery of the Week.

Nadine Porter: We find the Communications Manager for the FMG Young Farmer Contest in the US, in transit from South American to Europe, as a part of her Nuffield Scholarship travels.

Dick Tayler: Our Roving South Island Farming Ambassador offers rural folk the chance to join him on a farming tour to the UK and Ireland in July.
