Jan Borgman is keen to install LED lighting in the cubicle cow-shed. This type of lighting should make it possible to achieve energy savings of 66%. However, the currently available LED lighting is not suitable for dairy farming. The current generation of LED lighting cannot achieve a satisfactory light distribution, nor does it have the requisite colour spectrum. In addition, current LED products do not deliver adequate energy savings. A new system is now in the preparatory stages.
This will be tested and further developed in the course of 2012.
