1.The Lighting Time For The Lactating Cows and Heifers:
As the study said, controlling the duration of lighting time for the dairy cows is exposed to the milk production is influenced dramatically during the
lactation. Controlling the lighting in 16-18 hours and 6-8 hours in darkness, it can increased milk yield 5IBS/day during the lactation.
Otherwise, the lighting duration for the heifers for long time can help the lean growth and milk yield increase in the next lactation, comparing the
short time lighting duration.
2. The Lighting Time For The Dry Cows:
As the research said, the lighting time for the dry cows should be opposed to the lactation cows and heifers.Controlling 6-8 hours in lighting
duration and 16-18 hours in darkness, it will increased 7IBS/day in the next lactation.
3.Lighting Intensity For The Dairy Cattle:
15 foot-candles (about 150lux) at 3 feet from the floor of the stall is recommended. This could make the
cows be comfortable and relaxing.5000K-6000K color temperature is perfect for dairy cows.
