Their leading position has been built on knowledge and expertise about how light affects animal behaviour and well-being.

Every poultry application has its own needs: HATO offers application specific lighting solutions:

  • Layers: Optimizing the light climate improves the performance of layers. Light encourages the layer and regulates its biological clock and biorhythm. It stimulates the feed intake and the layer’s behaviour and contributes to the layer’s welfare.

  • Broilers: Light is one of the most important external stimuli for broilers. Light influences the uniformity of birds in the poultry house. The optimal distribution of the birds contributes to a good layer of litter and reduces health and welfare problems. Light stimulates activity as well as stimulating feed intake and conversion, and mortality. The range of vision and the ability to exhibit natural behaviour are, to a certain extent, dependent on light spectrum and intensity.

  • Breeders: Light is an important factor in breeder management, for both layer breeders and broiler breeders. An optimal light climate is essential for maintaining a high level of animal welfare, health and production. Light controls the day and night rhythms, egg production and the behaviour of breeders. An optimal light climate is needed to help the breeders get the very best out of their environment. Broilers and layers both produce a different end-product, and they require a specific light climate.

  • Rearing: During rearing, good management and housing lead to good growth and sexual development. Lighting is an important tool for managing this process and crucial to create the very best conditions in the house.
