From common housewife to deputy to city assembly

There is a housewives’ stockbreeding management board in Rangnang District, Pyongyang, and its chairwoman Ri Suk Hui is a deputy to the municipal people’s assembly and the Central Meritorious Person of Socialist Patriotism.

There was a reason why the woman who did only housework began housewives’ stockbreeding.

“After receiving a new house free of charge on Thongil Street newly built in the 1990s, I could not stay at home all the time. At that time I wanted to contribute something to the country. I came to know about a housewives’ stockbreeding management board, which was operated in a rural area near the district, and decided to do stockbreeding,” said Ri Suk Hui.

At the instance of Ri Suk Hui, Chungsong-dong No. 1 housewives’ stockbreeding workteam under the Rangnang District housewives’ stockbreeding management board was organized with housewives, and Ri was appointed the head of the workteam.

With over 10 members of the workteam, she built a not-so-big livestock base equipped with pigsties and a feed processing room.

She engaged in the growing of piglets with the money her family had saved, made feed with the by-products from the workteam’s foodstuff processing base and used by-products from residential families to tackle the shortage of feed.

“At the beginning when I was young, I was shy of collecting by-products in a handcart going round households every early morning and also felt sorry to leave household chores to my mother-in-law,” recalled Ri Suk Hui.

Her workteam produced more than 2 700kg of pork in a year to supply it to residents.

But she realized that livestock breeding cannot be done with only enthusiasm and it can be successful when done in a scientific method.

So, she enrolled in a study-while-you-work system at the age of 41.

In the course of this, she became an expert in veterinary work and animal husbandry. She properly did veterinary and anti-epizootic work according to seasons, established a breeding stock production system to increase the number of pigs and put feeding and breeding on a scientific basis.

In order to prevent environmental pollution, she introduced a medium- and small-sized soil-borne microorganism purifying method and such new technical findings as the Jonghyang compound bacteria, thereby gaining good experience in rearing pigs.

After becoming chairperson, she worked harder. And she built several pigsties. As pigs reared by the housewives’ stockbreeding workteams in the dong came to be raised on a livestock farm, the number of pigs they had to breed doubled.

The amount of meat produced by the housewives’ stockbreeding management board is over 100 tons every year.

“Our chairperson worked hard not only for her family but to enrich the diet of residents. Her motto is ‘If it is of some help to the country, our work is worthwhile,” said staffer So Jong Ok who has been working with her for a long time.
