DAIRY LIGHT: UNILIGHT’S MELATONIN MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR DAIRY COWS



HOW IT WORKS


Summer Daylight

Normal LED

Unilight Dairy Light

Our unique Dairy Light system is operated via a purpose-built controller. It has light sensors, dimmers and timers all programmed to the bespoke requirements of each farm. The Dairy Lights themselves emit a specific light spectrum, similar to the spectrum of daylight on a mid-summer day.  Daylight, and Unilight’s Dairy Light, has a greater proportion of blue spectrum light which suppresses melatonin production.  Suppressing melatonin has been scientifically proven to optimise productivity, fertility and milk yields in dairy cattle.

The following graphs show the light spectrum of daylight compared with that emitted by Unilight’s Dairy Light and a regular LED light bulb.  The black curve shows the light spectrum required for melatonin suppression – as you can see both daylight and the Dairy Light emit a high level of blue light, whilst the the regular LED light emits very little light within the melatonin suppression curve.
