Product Description

The MLB is specifically for poultry applications

AgriShift® MLB modular lights for broiler and turkey operations was created to help poultry operators significantly reduce electricity costs, decrease labor and maintenance costs, and increase flock performance. AgriShift® MLB lights are more energy efficient than fluorescent, incandescent, and HID counterparts. The savings can provide a fast return on investment, especially when considering the potential availability of energy efficiency rebates.

Compared to other barn lighting systems, these lights have no need for ballasts or transformers. They provide reduced heat generation, and can dim down to 5% which is especially important for maximizing grow out. The wet location rated modular design allows for easy installation in a wide range of applications.

How lighting can enhance flock performance

This is the first line of poultry lights that takes advantage of the visual response of domestic fowl. Because birds are sensitive to different intensities and colors of light, performance can be affected by controlling the lighting. The smooth dimming and color modulation of these lamps allows them to be easily controlled by standard barn dimmers.


Longevity is guaranteed with the AgriShift® MLB. A 50,000 hour lifetime is backed by a 5 year (24/7) replacement warranty.

Color Spectrum

Spectral Output of the AgriShift® MLB lamps


The graph shows how the AgriShift® MLB lamp closely mimics the color sensitivity of poultry during the brood period (full intensity)--note the enhanced red to activate locomotion and feeding behaviors.

During the grow-out phase, when lamps are dimmed, the red light is reduced leaving the light rich in blue and green spectrum. The bluish light can increase
weight in broilers by stimulating testosterone secretion and myofiber growth.
