The Integration of Rural Households into Ruminant Livestock Industries in China

Scott A. Waldron, Colin G. Brown and John W. Longworth

No 25318, 2006 Annual Meeting, August 12-18, 2006, Queensland, Australia from International Association of Agricultural Economists

Abstract: 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.
