Broilers Four Days Faster?

4 November 2013, at 6:20am

GLOBAL - It’s a very big claim when someone says to you that they are producing broilers four days faster when using your light bulbs than any other light source they have tried, according to AgriLamp.

Your first response as a manufacturer is, “Can I have the numbers please”, to which the answer is usually a resounding “No!”

So sometimes, it is a little difficult to substantiate these claims even though AgriLamp says it has seen similar results in its own test.

Going back six years ago, AgriLamp fitted its first broiler customer's lamps. He soon reported three to four days faster, and said the birds were calmer, evenly distributed and yet remained active. He would not share the numbers but thanked AgriLamp for the benefits.

Over the past few years, AgriLamp has invested more time and money into the understanding of poultry, pig, fish and plant responses to light through a university study and the data coming from the company's now more forthcoming customers. Needless to say, the smiles on their faces are getting wider by the day. And you’ve guessed it; AgriLamp is not sharing the numbers either. They say they clearly have an advantage that belongs to their customers.

AgriLamp does say: “Four days faster”, lower mortality and a beneficial reduction in water intake giving drier litter are all very real - in Australia, France, the UK, China and the US.

The interesting thing is that the company is now seeing similar beneficial effects on pigs, plants and fish.

AgriLamp says it is here to help keep the farmers' biggest and best secrets.
