A major determinant of rural development in China is the way by which rural households integrate with rural industries. Three forms of integration - market integration, vertical integration and integration through local groups - are investigated. Policy measures that may facilitate household integration, household specialisation and market segmentation are identified. Findings for the ruminant livestock sector are widely applicable to other agricultural industries in China.
