Summary of Interview 081214B with Nanjid

The collectivisation movement, which was one of the greatest events in the 20th century Mongolia, inevitably affected Nanjid’s life. The ‘Amdralyn tug’ (Life’s banner) collective farm had three brigades, and each brigade consisted of four groups. Each brigade was allocated one third of the sum’s territory. The administration of the collective farm consisted of director, an aid to the director, members of the council, and an accountant. Other positions included: workers, heads of the brigades, a livestock counter, veterinaries, heads of the groups, and herders. The collective farm also ran a hotel and a dining hall. Each brigade was allocated a doctor. The doctors checked herders by visiting them. In emergency cases patients were sent by ambulance to the sum hospital or referred to the aimag hospitals. Both the brigade doctors and veterinaries used the same mode of transport – horses and motorbikes. Various activities, such as the building of fences, the combing of goats, the cutting of sheep wool, and so on were done collectively and according to plan. Nanjid worked as a veterinary during the whole socialist period.
