Dr. Ian Rubinoff reviews of the principles and physiology of lighting at the 2014 Midwest Poultry Federation Convention.

The Power Point slides, which were presented, are reproduced with his permission for the benefit of readers of CHICK-CITE.

It is important to understand the underlying factors which influence activity and how selection and implementation of lighting programs can affect productivity and hence profitability. Both basic physiology and practical application are included in the review. Recently manufacturers of LED lamps have generated unsubstantiated hype and have made unscientific claims regarding the benefits of their technology with respect to production.

The presentation by Dr. Rubinoff provides clear explanations on how lighting affects chick growth, development during rearing, subsequent onset of lay and production"
