Raising animals and plants indoors requires specialized lighting systems to get the optimum results in both production and animal welfare. ONCE lighting is designed with both the farmer and animal in mind.
The type of lighting in your Ag facility is just as important as the nutrition, ventilation, water and heat you provide. Animals respond to lighting in different ways depending on how each species senses that light.
Learn about the successes we are seeing in the field as individual farmers and producers use our lighting for improved feed conversion, increased productivity, enhanced animal welfare and reduced energy costs.
Designed with techniques and materials that will withstand the harsh barn environment for years to come. Stands up to dirt, dust, high-pressure wash-downs, corrosive vapors including ammonia.

LED lighting saves energy but that is not all. By increasing productivity, other production inputs such as feed and water are conserved. In addition, the ruggedness and long lifetime eliminate re-lamping labor and conserve wasted materials that that would otherwise accompany an inferior lamp choice. These improvements lower the overall impact to the environment and reduce the drain of our planet's limited resources.
Raising animals and plants indoors has historically subjected them to inadequate light quality. By paying attention to each creatures detailed lighting needs, lighting can be tuned to more closely represent their natural light conditions. This reduces stress, promotes more natural behaviors and stimulates immunology.
By using specific colors combined with careful control of intensity and lighting period, productivity can be improved significantly. That may mean increasing the number of eggs laid OR increasing average daily gain with decreased feed conversion ratio OR lowering stress and boosting immune response.
