Brighten Up Your Barn Life with AniLEDLights
2012-12-11

Boost yields and brighten up your dairy shed with AniLEDLights, available now from your Scottish dairy equipment and supplies dealer, DairyFlow.

LED lights can increase milk yields by up to 6%.

“Installing LED lights in your dairy shed has a number of benefits” says DairyFlow Sales Manager, Scott Baird. “Not only will it save you money by reducing energy and maintenance costs, but research shows that LED lights can reduce stress and improve cow well-being in the shed, which in turn increases milk yields by a staggering 6% according to a recent study by Oklahoma State University*.”

Unlike conventional lighting LED lights produce no ultraviolet light, so don’t attract flies and can also be switched on and off instantly without flickering. AniLEDLights use 70% less energy than conventional lights too, and can be dimmed when there is plenty of natural daylight to save even more energy.

Scott continued: “By replacing a typical 400W sodium light with an 80-140W LED light which is on for 12 hours a day it is estimated that you will save around £130 per year per light in electricity at the current rate. The lights burn for up to 60,000 hours - that is nearly 14 years before they need to be changed if you use them 12 hours a day making them a real asset to any farm building.”

AniLEDLights requires no maintenance due to the longevity of the light so they can be placed anywhere in the shed. Plus they come with a 5 year warranty as standard.
