The Right Light
Lighting in agricultural is critical for production and health of livestock. For poultry, lighting has been a topic of research for years. And yet the needs for poultry lighting can differ greatly depending on the flock. Light requirements for broilers, layers, breeders in both chickens and turkey can greatly vary especially depending on their growth cycle and their production cycle. Lighting can alter the behaviour of the birds and even a small change can make a real difference.
You input the wrong light and you may notice changes in growth and development or even in eggs. In poultry (unlike most livestock facilities) we primarily source LED fixtures that provide 2,700 to 3,000 Kelvin in light temperature. Every project we can provide complete photometric mapping to ensure light consistency and minimize hot spots and shadows.
