Optimize milk production through lighting


Dairy cattle

During the milk- production period, optimal lighting and light schemes stimulate the release of hormones to eventually increase milk production. Furthermore, proper lighting improves ovulation and fertility for the next period. Feed intake can also be stimulated by proper lighting; this is especially important during days with a high THI.

Correct lighting in the milk production phase:

  • Stimulates and increases milk production
  • Improves fertility
  • Stimulates feed intake

Dry cattle

During the dry period, it is important to use light schemes that simulate natural conditions. In this way, feed intake improves, which at its turn improves the cattle’s condition. This has a positive influence during the production phase, where it will stimulate milk production and fertility as well.

Optimal lighting during the dry period:

  • Stimulates feed intake
  • Improves cattle conditions
  • Increases milk production and fertility during the production phase


Nothing is as important as a good start in life. Proper lighting has the power to stimulate calves during their young lives, to eventually become strong and productive dairy cattle. They will feel less stressed and as a result use all of their energy to grow into highly productive dairy cattle. By providing correct lighting and lighting schemes during this period, feed intake will improve, which improves their condition.

For calves, good lighting:

  • Enables a good start in life
  • Improves feed intake
  • Reduces stress
  • Improves their condition
