Minister of agriculture, food and rural development
Ron was elected as the Member of the Legislative Assembly for Swan River on October 4, 2011. He was appointed Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives in 2012 and re-appointed to the same department under its new name, the Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development, in 2013. Ron also served as Reeve of the RM of Mossey River and on council for two decades.
For the past 26 years, Ron has worked on the family farm consisting of a 200 cow/calf operation with 2560 acres. Born and raised in rural Manitoba, Ron knows that a strong rural economy is key to Manitoba’s success.
He is looking forward to working hard for families and for farmers in the Swan River constituency, and ensuring that Manitobans continue to benefit from a strong government that values the importance of agriculture, health care, education, jobs and infrastructure.
Dear Lord, Ron Kostyshyn is a farmer and knows agriculture, its impact on all Manitobans and Canadians and the world at large. We pray that you provide him and his government in Swan River with insight into what promotes good and sustainable agriculture, both for his constituents and Canadians, but also for the world that relies upon the Canadian farming industry. Lead him and his government along the path you desire would. We pray this in your Son’s name, Jesus Christ.
