Benefits

Benefits of the AgriShift® MLB for Poultry:

  • Improves feed conversion
  • Promotes early weight gain
  • Low-profile, wide beam angle
  • Advanced system specialized for poultry
  • 12W LED equivalent to 100W incandescent
  • Enhances animal welfare
  • Built For Your Barn® design
  • Patented spectral output

The AgriShift® MLB lighting fixture for broiler and turkey operations is made with species-specific, Dim-to-Blue®, technology and a Built For Your Barn® design. It offers an optimized color spectrum and full dimming capability, allowing producers to enhance production by controlling photoperiod and light intensity throughout the entire life cycle of the bird. With an AgriShift® Controller and a ONCE® recommended lighting program, producers can improve bird weight, flock uniformity and feed conversion rates, while lowering stress levels.

The AgriShift® MLB reduces electricity costs and decreases labor and maintenance costs. It is more energy efficient than fluorescent, incandescent, and HID counterparts, while the savings provide a fast return on investment, especially when considering the potential availability of energy efficiency rebates. Compared to other barn lighting systems, this lighting fixture has no need for ballasts or transformers. It provides reduced heat generation and full dimming capability, to 5%, which is important for maximizing grow out. The wet location rated modular design allows for easy installation in a wide range of applications.

Productivity Enhancement

Because birds see differently and are sensitive to different intensities and colors of light, performance can be affected by controlling the lighting. The smooth dimming and color modulation of these lamps allows them to be easily controlled by standard barn dimmers.

The Science

The AgriShift® MLB has an optimized blue/green spectrum with added red content for uniform growth and healthy bird development. Green light increases growth during the early stages, while blue light has been shown to elevate plasma androgens in poultry at later stages of development. Other studies show that blue light can calm birds, reduce blood pressure and positively effect blood glucose and triglyceride levels.

Advanced Technology

Dim-to-Blue® technology encourages uniform growth by offering healthy bird development during every growth stage.

A Built For Your Barn® design uses techniques and materials that withstand harsh barn environments for years to come.

AgriShift® lighting systems “shift” spectrum and intensity, meeting the individual needs of your animals.
