A few days ago, Xiao Bian quoted in an article on lighting technology inventory: using the cold light source of LED lights to control the lighting of the house, combined with the cooling system, the mood of the laying hens will be more stable and easier to raise. Among them, red light can stimulate the number of eggs laid, green light can increase the size of eggs, and single light source can increase the survival rate of small hens. Therefore, in theory, the laying hen will lay eggs, and the taste of the eggs is better.

It is a new thing and a new idea to raise the chicken farm with LED lights. However, for the LED lights of the chicken farm, we should first know how to use it properly. This is a lot of learning, and this article will be discussed for everyone.


It must be noted that poultry farming is usually very conservative and it takes a while to receive LED technology . However, the poultry industry now embraces LED technology and its energy-saving benefits. In the past few years, increasingly sophisticated LED technology has gradually met the lighting needs of the poultry industry.

A good LED lamp is 80% to 85% more energy efficient than an incandescent lamp. But not all LED lights are the same, and farmers should spend time researching LED lights before buying. All LED lights are more expensive than incandescent lights, so you definitely don't want to make mistakes and waste money.

Lighting is an important environmental factor in the poultry industry. Lighting affects production efficiency, animal welfare, and growth rate. The four major elements of light are intensity, period, source, and spectral range. The color of light depends on the different wavelengths in the visible spectrum.

White light contains all the wavelengths in the visible spectrum. But even if it is the same white light, it will show different color temperatures due to the different energy emitted by different wavelengths. Therefore, poultry farmers do not try to use LED bulbs without asking for details or consulting a credible person.

LED field test

Fortunately, many well-known universities in the United States, including Mississippi State University, Auburn University, Georgia University, University of Arkansas, University of Maryland, University of Delaware, etc., have been promoted by agricultural extension workers when LEDs are first introduced into poultry farming. The test. After conducting numerous field trials, these promoters evaluated a variety of different LED products , providing a fair assessment of the cost analysis, investment recovery potential and service life of the product. These results are free of charge, so feel free to ask and study carefully to help you make the right purchase decision.

Please do not select LED bulbs that have not been field-proven in the house. Due to the effects of dust, humidity and ammonia, the environment of the house is much harsher than that of homes and businesses. Some light bulbs are not designed for such an environment and cannot withstand the test of these factors.

The energy-saving performance of LEDs is impeccable. Farmers have questions about LEDs. Will poultry behave like LEDs under incandescent light?

The answer is yes, but it needs to be under conditions where the incubation and growth periods are adequate, the dimmers are working properly and the poultry is well cared for. In this way, poultry will perform as well under any LED light source as any other light source.

What is the impact of LED on poultry?

Many farmers have replaced the compact fluorescent lamps with LED lights and found that the poultry's temperament has become more docile. This may be because the LED lights are not flashing like fluorescent lights. Because chickens are more sensitive than humans, chickens are more susceptible to flashing lights.

To some extent, LED technology is ahead of dimmer technology, so not all dimmers can be matched to LED bulbs. This causes the LED bulb to not dim in a linear manner like an incandescent lamp (the so-called linearity means that when the dimmer is dimmed by 20%, the brightness of the bulb is also darkened by 20%). On LED lights, the dimmer may need to be adjusted to a large extent to make the LED light show signs of darkening. Dimmer manufacturers are also struggling to catch up, but there are still many old dimmers on the market, which need to be upgraded to accurately adjust the brightness of LED lights.

Some dimmers may work with just one upgrade chip, but some dimmers are too old to replace newer products to accommodate more advanced LED technology.

Choose an LED bulb of the right color temperature. The color temperature is expressed in Kelvin temperature units (on). Warm light is from 2700 to 3000, similar to incandescent or high-pressure sodium, with orange-red. Natural light ranges from 3,400 to 3,700. The cool light has a blue-white color ranging from 5,000 to 6,000.

The color temperature of the most widely used LED lamps in broiler breeding is currently 5000, and the most widely used in breeder farming is 2700. Again, not all LED lights are suitable for farming. A quality home omnidirectional LED light is not the best choice for a chicken house.

A Main Distribution Frame (MDF) is a signal distribution frame or cable rack used in telephony to interconnect and manage telecommunication wiring between itself and any number of intermediate distribution frames and cabling from the telephony network it supports.
