Less floor eggs, less stress and a higher egg production

Layer lighting

The lighting equipment is an important part of the overall poultry house equipment. Our experiences from the last 45+ years, combined with our extensive amounts of research taught us that every type of poultry requires a specific light climate. By providing this light climate in close cooperation with our partners, we are able to make life for both farmer and layers way better.

Correct lighting is unmissable in a profitable layer house. To make sure that layers feel and perform better, they have to be able to see optimally. When the layers see better, they will adapt easier to their environment, have a better FCR, experience less stress and more. Besides that, when the different aspects of light are optimised, they directly influence layer behaviour, welfare and performances. Less floor eggs, less stress and a higher egg production are some of the welcome results this.

Long story short: an optimal light climate is able to significantly improve layer farm performances in a responsible way.

Optimal lighting in a layer house:

Is unmissable for profitable farming

Optimises layer sight: optimal environmental adaption

Increases layer well-being & health: less stress & more

Improves performances: improved production, less floor eggs, etc.

Improves company performances in a responsible way

Layer house specific lighting

An optimal light climate can only be realised when the needs of both the system and the overall house are fulfilled as well. Each house has different heights, widths, lengths, wall colours and a specific system that is being used. They all influence the type and the positioning of the lamps needed.

Every layer house has its own lighting needs. This explains why it’s so important to set up a custom-made light plan for each house that is going to be equipped.
