A new dairy farm in Idaho was looking for a lighting solution for the cows in their barns. They wanted to find a energy-efficient and cost-effective lighting solution that would create a ideal working environment for their employees and increase milk production from their cows. After researching different options, they choosed ACE’s offer.
- Find the right light
The first challenge was to find right type of the LED high bay lights that would meet the specific needs of the dairy farm. The lights needed to be durable, long-lasting, and capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions, such as high ammonia and extreme humidity. They also needed to provide a high level of illumination to ensure that the cows were comfortable and productive.
- Smart controlling
Intelligent lighting is essential for dairy farms in order to provide a comfortable and productive environment for cows.
The use of a lighting control allows a schedule for the daily lighting duration be created individually for the different areas and combined with an illuminance that can be individually adjusted for the respective time, which can have a positive impact on their milk production and overall health.
In addition, with light control in connection with dimmable lights, an abrupt change in the light level, as is the case when the lighting system is switched on or off manually, can be avoided, since this can frighten and unsettle the animals, especially dairy cows.
