COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS - Lighting

Lighting is an important part of animal production, including poultry. Light is involved in the daily biological cycles of biochemical, physiological and behavior activities of all animals.

Different animals see light different. This is why chickiens and turkeys may behave differently under the same intensity of light from two different sources even if the both lights look the same to us.
