Show Notes

This week I had a conversation with Rob Hewett, a man who is involved in the primary industries at many levels: production, processing, exporting and education.  It is fascinating to hear his 'helicopter' perspective of these businesses and his view of the future of the primary industries in New Zealand.  A recurring theme is how carbon is shaping the discussions in boardrooms all around New Zealand.

Rob is also one of the first commercial farmers in New Zealand to adopt Smart Shepherd technology on his farm in South Otago. His aim is to improve his flock by identifying his high performing ewes. The end goal is to stay carbon neutral by increasing production efficiency through farming with the best genetics.
