The capital include generations in the village, relatives in the government, family fixed assets, expericence of hog production and the costs for operation, whether join the cooperative, the distance from the highways, and land availability. To realize scale economy of hog production, it is necessary for the government to provide supports with more property and social capital to hold large scale hog farming and employ those who don’t have the forementioned advantages. In addition, the government should design and build enough transportation facilities and ameliorate the circulation of rural land.
