Rabobank Best of The Country - 7th October 2017

It's the Best of The Country with Jamie Mackay and Rabobank. Every week Jamie picks his favourite interviews for your listening pleasure.

Here's the best of the week that was:

Damien O'Connor:

Labour's Primary Industry spokesman and Minister-in-waiting talks about M Bovis and wooing Winston - both of which are not without their challenges!

Dr Jacqueline Rowarth:

We ask the chief scientist for the Environmental Protection Authority if reducing human and dairy cow numbers is the solution for reducing GHG emissions?

Hayley Moynihan:

Rabobank's GM Country Banking looks at the bank's latest farmer confidence survey and offers her 'state of the nation' for New Zealand agriculture.

Todd Clark:

We journey to Kentucky to talk to a US farmer about the right to bear arms, the fallout from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and how you could be celebrating a Kiwi Thanks Giving Dinner in Lexington on November 23.

Nathan Guy:

We find the Minister for Primary Industries docking lambs in Central Hawkes Bay and we ponder the latest on the M Bovis outbreak and which way Winston will swing?

Don Fraser:

The man behind Fraser Farm Finance is also a rural blogger. Today he confronts the challenging issue of rural suicide.
