The AgriShift® MLM-B was created as an animal welfare friendly retrofit solution for modern poultry confinement systems. Designed with Dim-to-Blue® technology, it increases bird performance while reducing electrical, maintenance and labor costs. The AgriShift® MLM-B has an optimized color spectrum and dimming capability to meet the birds’ developmental needs, enhance welfare and provide uniform growth. This LED replaces standard CFL bulbs so it can fit directly into existing standard electrical junction boxes.
The Science Behind the Technology
The AgriShift® MLM-B has an enhanced blue and green spectrum with added red content for early bird development. Green light increases growth during early stage of development, while blue light is shown to be helpful in the growth of poultry at a later age by elevating plasma androgens. Other studies show that blue light can calm birds, reduce blood pressure and positively effect blood glucose and triglyceride levels.
