PLYMOUTH, MN (September 18, 2018) – Dr. Aaron Stephan, Director of Biological R&D at Once Inc. (ONCE), will present Basics of Lighting in Lay Farms at the Iowa Egg Industry Symposium next month. The single-day symposium will touch on an assortment of topics pertaining to layer management including genetics, vaccination, management and flock biosecurity. Stephan will […]
Last week at the 2018 Annual Poultry Science Association Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, ONCE sponsored a symposium entitled, “Novel applications of light applied to poultry production: Influencing growth, behavior and biosecurity”. The symposium gave a great overview of traditional lighting topics, like the importance of wavelength, intensity and photoperiod when raising animals in indoor […]
Our thoughts on the recommendations to install windows into poultry houses. Innovation typically comes from recognizing a problem, proposing a logical and cost-effective solution, implementing the solution in a limited way and collecting data to prove or disprove the efficacy of the solution before rolling it out on a greater scale. Taking into consideration […]
PLYMOUTH, MN (July 17th, 2018) – Once Inc. (ONCE) sponsors a symposium entitled, “Novel applications of light applied to poultry production: Influencing growth, behavior and biosecurity” at the 2018 Poultry Science Association (PSA) Annual Meeting this month. The latest research involving lighting and poultry will be presented by seven distinguished speakers from Academia and Industry. […]
PLYMOUTH, MN (May 8, 2018) – Scientists at ONCE, in conjunction with two major US universities, have found that the addition of an Ultraviolet A (UV-A) spectrum into animal housing lighting reduces stress levels by a significant margin. This reduction of stress represents possibly the biggest breakthrough for poultry animal welfare in recent history. […]
The newest and most advanced lighting technology available on the market today. Introduction Last week we wrote about What Enhanced Natural Lighting is. This week, we explain why use it and issues you may experience if you’re not. Background Enhanced natural lighting goes beyond traditional LED technologies by replicating the light intensity and jungle-like green spectrum of a birds’ natural […]
The newest and most advanced lighting technology available on the market today. Introduction Decades of photobiology research demonstrate that light is one of the most influential variables affecting the biology of living organisms. It is proven to subconsciously direct behaviors in both animals and humans by modifying embryonic and postnatal growth and regulating gene expression. […]
