N. Korean leader orders anti-epidemic measures at pig farm

By Kim Hyun
SEOUL, Nov. 30 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has called for strict anti-epidemic measures during his latest visit to a pig farm that was newly constructed outside Pyongyang, state media said Monday.

Kim's latest field guidance trip to the Sokjong Pig Farm on the outskirts of the capital came just one day after he reportedly visited goat and cotton farms run by the Korean People's Army. Monday's reports said that in addition to the pig farm, Kim has also toured a foodstuff farm and a fruit farm.
