Johnson has called for the abolition of English-language visa requirements in order to save the slaughter of 100,000 pigs.

In a desperate attempt to avoid a mass killing of 100,000 British pigs, UK farmers are demanding a change in immigration restrictions.

Foreign vets and butchers are expected to speak English under post-Brexit visa regulations.

However, the government is presently only issuing 1,000 temporary visas to fill workforce shortages in the UK’s farming sector due to persistent staff shortages.

The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) now wants the government to lower the needed level of English so that more workers can come to the UK to help with the farm staffing deficit.

“We want the needed level of English to be decreased so that there is a larger pool of people who can come here and assist tackle this situation,” NFU President Minette Batters told The Mail on Sunday.

“People are already being skill-tested by recruitment companies in South America.

“If the language barrier were overcome, they could come here rapidly.”

“We already know that farmers are slaughtering pigs on their farms.

“It’s in the hundreds right now, not thousands, but it’s a ticking time bomb.”

“There has to be a solution in a matter of days.”

Britain is facing a “acute welfare calamity,” according to Rob Mutimer, chair of the National Pig Association (NPA).

Farmers may be forced to murder their livestock, according to Mr Mutimer, due to a severe scarcity of butchers and slaughterers.

“We are within a few of weeks of having to consider a major cull of animals in this country,” he warned on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

“As of now, we estimate that our backlog is between 100,000 and 120,000 cases.”

“And it’s rising at a rate of roughly 12,000 every week.”

“This is happening all throughout the country on pig farms; they are overcrowded and running out of space to maintain pigs.”

According to NFU figures, nearly 500,000 of the four million individuals employed in the farming sector fled during the epidemic.

More than a third of horticulture job openings are still vacant, according to the data.

According to the Office for National Statistics, 27% of food industry businesses had lower-than-normal stock levels.

According to Grant Thornton, there are more than 500,000 job openings in the food and beverage industry.

In the midst of the labor shortage, the government has maintained that food companies must pay British workers before turning to international workers.
