LED Lighting for Dairy Farmers
The introduction of LED with it’s bright, crisp light changed the standard for lighting in every industry. In agriculture where animal health and cleanliness are the top priority, bright, clear LED light has made it easier for dairy farmers to catch injury and disease early. LED lighting in the right location has also helped farmers maintain clean udders, helping decrease somatic cell count and improving milk quality. Controlling long- and short-day lighting will impact milk production, dry matter intake, and more.

It’s not enough to just swap out your old fluorescent bulbs with LEDs, the placement of the fixture matters. Mounting a fixture too high will cast shadows. In the parlor, holding pen and milking robot area, properly located lights can impact the cow’s ability to relax and load more efficiently. The Under Udder system is designed and installed at the ideal placement for cleanliness and cow comfort.
Don’t allow shadows to keep you from catching the small things before they become a bigger concern. From culturing cows to ensuring the cleanliness of the teat before milking begins, Under Udder will give you the light you need. Made in America, Under Udder delivers the bright, white light of LED directly at the udder. The light placement eliminates all shadows, and you will see a difference in even the brightest milking parlor.

Since installing our Under Udder LED lighting system, our milkers are happier. The parlor is well-lit ensuring a cleaner work environment, and a better quality product.
Jill Houin I Homestead Dairy
We love the Under Udder lighting system. When I'm giving farm tours, the udder is illuminated allowing the public to see the milking process clearly. In the parlor, our milkers can see the udder better, providing a cleaner workspace.
Tajia Retzlaff I Retzlaff Century Farms
The Under Udder lighting system is great. It enhances the environment, making it brighter for both employees and cows. Well worth the small cost.
Andrew Folkema I A&R Farms
Getting LED light directly at the udder has improved our milkers' efficiency and ensured a clean work environment. We thought our parlor had great lighting before installing the Under Udder system, but the difference was huge.
Steve Brilowski I Kozlovsky Dairy Equipment
The sales part, for me, is really easy. You turn the light on and the farmer can see what they're missing.
