Shed lighting: Cattle
To encourage cattle to make the best possible use of the shed equipment, the shed needs to be lit by optimal shed lighting. The shed equipment must provide an optimal light distribution, the right light spectrum and light intensity. It is a proven fact that dairy cattle yield more milk when an optimal light program and light intensity are utilised.
