Coming up

9:06 pm Friday 18 April: Country Life

Iconic Hawkes Bay sheep and beef station Tautane was purchased by Ngati Kahungunu last May. It’s leased by the agricultural training organisation Taratahi and students get the opportunity to work on a farm which still has five thousand lambs to muster and big ranging hills and valleys to ride over. Country Life meets the farm manager and a group of keen agricultural trainees.

Also, Clem Smith is a commercial eeler on Lake Ellesmere .
