Rabobank Best of The Country - 20th May 2017

It's the Best of The Country, where Jamie Mackay picks his favourite interviews of the week and delivers them to your eardrums courtesy of Rabobank.

This week's interviews were:

Nathan Guy: The Minister for Primary Industries talks duck shooting, the sustainable dairy water accord, a good GDT auction result and he fires a shot back at Winston Peters.

Tim Hunt: Rabobank's Research GM examines why US dairy farmers voted for Donald Trump and we ask if Trump is good or bad news for Kiwi cow cockies?

Andrew Little: The Labour leader denies the election is going to be all about the Auckland housing crisis, talks TPP, SFF and why he's chosen to take acting lessons!

Dean Hamilton: The chief executive of Silver Fern Farms defends the cooperative's decision to close the Fairton plant in Ashburton with the resultant loss of 370 jobs.

Andy Thompson: A West Coast cow cocky has a crack at a wayward Radio Sport host, goes in to bat for referees and encourages punters to eat Westland Dairy Products butter.

Don Carson: The Country's resident Myrtle Rust Aficionado opines on the alien invader and a succession of bad news for the sheep industry.
