Kim Jong Il Inspects Goat and Cotton Farm of KPA
Pyongyang, November 28 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided field guidance to the goat farm of Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the KPA and the cotton farm under KPA Unit 1596.

The first leg of his guidance was the newly built goat farm of Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the KPA.

After being briefed on the farm before a large map showing its panoramic view, he went round the milk processing room and other places of the farm to acquaint himself in detail with its construction and technical equipment and the raising of goats.

He watched cheese, butter, yogurt and other varieties of processed milk products churning out from each production process and expressed great satisfaction over the fact that soldier-builders have successfully built the modern goat farm in a brief span of time by giving full play to the revolutionary soldier spirit. And he highly appreciated their feats.

He praised the employees of the farm for their efforts, very pleased to learn that they have raised goats, milch cows and other domestic animals, fed them and conducted the anti-epizootic work to meet the high scientific and technological requirements, thus increasing the milk products.

He visited the house of Song Chol Ryong and Kwak Un Ju, a couple of ex-soldiers working at the farm, to take care of their living and give a warm pep talk to them.

In recent years various units have built goat, cattle and rabbit farms and other modern farms in different parts of the country as required by the new century to produce a lot of milk and meat, he said, adding that the army is taking the lead in the drive to successfully implement the instruction of President Kim Il Sung to obtain meat from grass, too.

He stressed the need to actively follow the example of the People's Army to widely breed goats as a mass movement.

The next leg of his guidance was the cotton farm under KPA Unit 1596.

After being briefed on the cotton cultivation on an experimental basis, he made the rounds of a vast expanse of cotton fields to learn about the cotton cultivation.

He was greatly satisfied with an unprecedentedly rich cotton harvest reaped by the officials and other working people of the farm.

Noting that the Party members and other working people of the farm have systematically increased the production every year and accumulated a wealth of experience in putting the cotton farming on a scientific basis, he highly appreciated their achievements.

He noted with great joy that thanks to the devoted efforts of the servicepersons of the KPA, their hearts burning with ardent patriotism, it has become possible to settle the problem of cotton, too.

The servicepersons of the KPA, the defenders of the country and creators of the people's happiness, have built a lot of monumental structures for the people in various places, he said, adding that these laudable feats performed by them in building a rich and powerful country eloquently prove that the KPA is creditably playing a pioneer's role in socialist construction, too.

Pointing out that very high is the enthusiasm of the Korean people dynamically waging a final charge to fling open the gate to a thriving nation, he earnestly called on all the leading officials to minutely organize work as required by their zeal and push ahead with it in the same revolutionary work style as done by the commanding officers of the KPA and thus provide the people with a more affluent life as early as possible.

He was accompanied by Vice Marshal of the KPA Kim Yong Chun, vice-chairman of the NDC of the DPRK and minister of the People's Armed Forces, KPA General Kim Jong Gak, member of the NDC of the DPRK and first vice-director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, Ri Yong Ho, chief of the General Staff of the KPA, and other commanding officers of the KPA.
