Two Uni-Light Projects to be evaluated in Germany and Austria
In total, Uni-light has made more than 50 installations at farms in UK, ASweden, Germany and Austria. In Germany, Uni-Light has installed its dairy lights in one of the country’s largest dairy farms, MILCHOF RODENWALDE. The farm, which is very modern, has about 1750 dairy cows and is currently constructing stables for an additional 800 dairy cows. Our project is comprised of two groups of 400 cows, one using our lights and one without our lights. The evaluation of the effects of our lights on the cows will begin in October and continue to the end of the year.
In Austria, our reference is a very innovative dairy farm in the central Alps. The farm has about 40 cows producing organic milk. Thus far, due to our better illumination in the farm, calves are moving around safely, mother cows are less stressed, and there is better communication between the mothers and calves. Additionally, because of contrasting illumination in the milk parlor, cows are more safely moving in and out of the milking parlor and milking is made easier.

A REPORT FROM Alltech E-CO2 CONFIRMS A FARM USING UNILIGHT’S DAIRY LIGHT HAS HAD A MILK YIELD INCREASE OF 9% WITHIN 4 WEEKS!
Alltech E-CO2, the leading supplier of agricultural sustainability measurement and mitigation services, has just generated data from a 240 cow farm that confirms a 9% yield increase after installation of UNILIGHT’s patented LED Dairy Light and control system. This, coupled with a reduction in concentrate usage from 0.35 to 0.31kg/lt, improves margins by 1.9ppl for the year totalling £263 per cow. David Hardy from Unilight commented “We are delighted with this report – the first independent recording we have based on farm generated data before and after just four weeks’ installation. Research always suggested such responses were achievable but we now have the evidence! With payback of all capital expenditure in months rather than years, farmers can increase yield, or cut cow numbers and/or feed costs with almost immediate cash flow benefits.”
