Clayton Kotylak has always been very passionate about western Canadian agriculture and the global food supply chain.
With a lifetime of experience in the production of cereals, pulses, oilseeds, and beef in Montmartre Saskatchewan, he has always been an adopter of innovation in the areas of crop production, mechanics, logistics, and genetics.
Through critical thought, and having a curious mind, Clayton became an outspoken proponent of the free-market economy and began to strive for better agriculture policy for farmers in the west.
Recognizing the value and credibility of The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, Clayton joined the organization in the late 1980’s and became an active member. After being elected to the Board of Directors in 2018, Clayton began to work on the publication of the Wheat Growers’ 50th anniversary history book, Warriors For Wheat. This speaks to his unwavering commitment to the industry and the Association.
