There's been bite-back from Country Calendar viewers - who've labelled a farm featured in the latest episode as "woke" and "PC".

Lake Hawea Station plays classical music during shearing, and shearers are judged on the experience for the sheep, not the traditional tally.

Country Calendar gets around 600-thousand weekly viewers.

Geoff Ross called in to speak with Simon Barnett & James Daniels on the show.
