Brave leadership has been a fabric of our primary sector for the past century and now is a time to continue that attitude in the face of what many think is just a New Zealand government challenge when our farming cousins around the world are facing the same challenges.
As this week's Sarah's Country Sisters, Anna and Sarah discuss:
- Her opinion's on New Zealand food & fibre's science commercialization moving to private equity and offshore capital markets.
- Her empathy attending the last farmer protest with her farming mum and her son of agriculturalists turned off a career in the sector along with the international animal scientists saying they feel they will be the last generation, the pressures on the livestock industry is a global challenge.
- The opportunities for New Zealand's natural health products from plants are being hindered by our antiquated regulation and international scientific collaboration.
- Her advice on women leadership in the sector by men leading that change by opening doors and taking women seriously, as well as women deepening their networks with other women.
