Animals often have far superior sensorial perception to our own. It is now widely accepted that light flicker caused by the use of lighting fixtures powered at mains frequency (50 Hz) (see page 3 of brochure) generates stress, increasing the occurrence of cannibalism amongst small animals and states of nervous tension on dairy cow farms. 

This flicker, imperceptible to humans but not to animals, does not occur with LED light because LEDs are powered by direct current. This, together with the use of night-time red light (also LED), allows for greater animal welfare and consequently higher milk production, as well as energy savings of up to 75% on lighting. 

Our site will be publishing further short news items on the subject of animal welfare. 

The reports published in our brochures come from our livestock farmer customers in Northern Europe. We are also looking to confirm these findings in Italy and would like to collaborate with livestock farmers and authoritative public or private bodies to further improve dedicated lighting fixtures, well aware that much can still be done in the field of animal welfare.

BENEFITS

  • red light giving good nighttime visibility as well, to allow cattle to rest and human checking and maintenance to be carried out at same time
  • unidirectional light, i.e. the total absence of light pollution
  • LEDs last longer than any kind of filament (with a minimum estimated life of about 200,000 hours!)
  • zero maintenance costs
  • lower possibility of faults
  • possibility of controlling power and luminous flux
  • instant switching on
  • insensitivity to ambient temperature and hence no difficulty in switching on in even the harshest of climates
  • instant start and restart function with electronic transformers
  • constant luminous efficiency of light over time
  • do not contain mercury or lead
  • no ultraviolet light emission and therefore do not attract bats and nocturnal insects.
