The AgriShift® TLUS under-system tube light provides layer producers with a lighting solution that brightens underneath cages, significantly reducing floor eggs. It has a bright white and blue light output which has been shown to calm birds, reduce blood pressure and positively effect blood glucose and triglyceride levels.
This 5 foot in-system lighting option provides a uniform and continuous light pattern free of dark spots and shadows. Birds are less likely to lay eggs under the caging systems, while being noticeably calmer.
Science and Technology
The AgriShift® TLUS is fully dimmable, minimizing extreme changes in lighting. Abrupt changes are shown to excite flight responses, increasing cortisol levels and inhibiting melatonin secretion—both of which have a negative effect on the well-being of the bird. With uniform coverage, a consistent light pattern and the ability to provide sunset and sunrise functionality, corticosterone levels and other stress markers are minimized, improving animal welfare.
