Russia: ASF reduced backyard farms; large farms profit Backyard farming, once the major method of pig production in Russia, is bit by bit becoming a rare phenomenon. Especially as a consequence of the African Swine Fever (ASF) virus, only larger pig farms managed to bounce back, like e.g. in Kaliningrad. Not surprisingly, overall pig production by backyard production has shrunk in recent years.
