Benefits of the AgriShift® MLM-R for Layers and Breeders:
• Enhances productivity
• Improves animal welfare
• Reduces energy costs
• Replaces CFL screw-based lamps
• Advanced 8W LED system specialized for poultry
• Low-profile, wide 200 degree beam angle
• Dim-to-Red® technology
• Built For Your Barn® design
The AgriShift® MLM-R makes it easy to improve production and animal welfare by providing daylight simulation with it’s advanced, species-specific, Dim-to-Red® technology. The red spectrum used has been shown to decrease time to peak production by stimulating the release of two reproduction regulating hormones essential for sexual maturation and daily egg laying. Sunrise and sunset simulation eliminates the stress of switching lights on and off abruptly. This lessens overall stress in flock and lowers mortality, while improving immune response and animal welfare.
The Science Behind the Technology
The AgriShift® MLM-R has a deep red saturated light output, with an added blue and green spectrum, benefiting the vision of your bird. The enhanced red spectrum is the only spectrum shown to stimulate a hen’s hypothalamic and pineal oscillators, helping maintain circadian rhythms and promoting sexual maturity.
A Built For Your Barn® design uses techniques and materials that withstand harsh barn environment for years to come.
