Cows need eight hours a day of darkness in order to rest properly. This can make it very difficult to work in the barn during the night. The L4C 30N and 17N have integrated LED red lighting for rest hours. This saves you money on installation costs of additional night lighting. Cows barely detect red light and it gives sufficient illumination for you to go on your rounds or carry out work without disturbing the cows.
Better light schedule, more milk
Good lighting in the barn has been shown to enhance cows’ productivity. With Lely Light for Cows (L4C) you can set up an efficient light plan, giving 150 – 200 lux light intensity in the barn, 16 hours a day. A good lighting plan can increase milk production by 6-15%. It also has a positive influence on the cows’ activity, fertility and on the growth of your young cattle.
