LEDs ARE 80% MORE EFFICIENT
THAN INCANDESCENT BULB
Lighting significantly impacts poultry production. Too little lighting during brooding or too much during grow-out can result in lost performance and profits. Solid side wall, tunnel-ventilated poultry barns are more energy efficient to operate but do require artificial lighting sources.
The expense of lighting a poultry barn with 60-watt incandescent bulbs can be as much as 30-40% of the electrical operating cost ($100-$250 a flock/barn depending on barn size and flock age to market). Therefore, lighting improvements should not only be beneficial for the birds but also energy efficient to minimize production costs.
The 2700 and 3000 Kelvin LED bulbs provided by Emunah is specifically designed for broiler, turkey, layer and breeder production facilities with success. When brood lighting is adequate, bird performance with LED bulbs is proving to be as good as, if not better than, performance under traditional light
