Research by, among others, Nottingham Trent University in England shows that horses are extremely sensitive to the lack of daylight. You can read the entire study under the heading "research". If you are unable to let the horses graze during the day, or if you have a horse that is less active in winter than in summer, True-Light lamps are a good alternative.
Daylight stimulates milk production, fertility and growth in animals. For cows, pigs and goats are less and less outside and this has direct consequences on the physical condition. With True-Light full spectrum daylight lamps you bring natural daylight back in. The light activates the synthesis of vitamin D, which is necessary for the absorption of calcium and other minerals into the blood. This makes it easier for the animals to come into heat, the insemination is more successful and the milk production is maintained. True-Light is also often used in the milking parlour. After all, you as a dairy farmer spend many hours a day here. Using our light ensures a pleasantly lit workspace and less fatigue.
Birds are very visual. They can distinguish more types of light than humans and perceive higher light frequencies. The True-Light full-spectrum daylight provides the necessary UVA and UVB and the correct daylight colour, which stimulates the immune system of birds. A literature study shows that poultry has a preference for high light intensity during the day. With birds, the perception of light and dark is done by the parietal eye. This is an eye-like organ just below the skull roof between the two hemispheres of the brain. The epiphysis responds to the perception -dark- by secreting the hormone melatonin (sleep hormone). That is why bright daylight with UV is very important for birds. Pigeons, canaries, parakeets, parrots and tropical birds all benefit from the use of good full-spectrum daylight in combination with high-frequency fixtures.
Amphibians and reptiles
In vertebrates with a thin skull, such as amphibians and reptiles, the perception of light and dark is done by the parietal eye. This is an eye-like organ just below the skull roof between the two hemispheres of the brain. The epiphysis responds to the perception - dark - by that "third eye" with the secretion of the hormone melatonin (sleep hormone). That is why bright daylight with UV is very important. Because LED lamps do not yet contain UVA and UVB, fluorescent lamps or energy-saving lamps from True-Light are still chosen for reptiles and ambibies because they also emit UVA and UVB. For fish, True-Light daylight lamps promote the growth of beneficial algae in the water, while inhibiting that of less-welcoming organisms. The colours of your fish come to life. The better recognition of complex color patterns during courtship increases the chances of reproduction.
