Rabobank Best of The Country - 10th February 2018

Catch up on the best of the week that was with Jamie Mackay and Rabobank.

This week's top interviews are:

Rod Slater:

The chief executive of Beef + Lamb New Zealand goes in to bat for New Zealand farmers as a new investigative series in the Sunday Star Times suggests environmental sustainability concerns are putting the heat on meat, with rapidly declining domestic consumption of beef and, particularly, lamb.

John Wilson:

Fonterra's chairman comments on the good news/bad news stories for the cooperative - a great GDT auction result (up 5.9%) and an ugly investment in Beingmate.

Wes Lefroy:

There is a lot of excitement and talk about 'blockchain' but yet little is known about what it actually is, and how this digitised technology could be implemented in the agrisector.

Rabobank's agricultural analyst has been closely following the potential of this new digitised approach to managing supply chains and how it could revolutionise the food and agri supply chain.

Bill English:

The former PM talks about an unchanged OCR, the state of the world economy, keeping your enemies close and a speed shear at Waimumu!

Annabeth Cohen:

Is a Forest and Bird Fresh Water spokeswoman who argues large scale dams and associated water schemes aren't the panacea many hope they will be.

Don Carson:

The PR Man for the Forest Owners Association takes issue with Forest and Bird's Fresh Water spokeswoman, Annabeth Cohen, who argued on yesterday's show that large scale dams and associated water schemes aren't the panacea many hope they will be.
