This heat bulb provides radiant heat to keep juvenile livestock warm via the top-bottom heat effusion from the bulb.
- It features a brass base to minimize corrosion and hardened Pyrex glass which is resistant to shattering (when in contact with liquids).
- It is a valuable tool for the first few weeks of life of livestock and delivers “top-down” heat intensity in relation to the distance from the floor area.
- Our heat bulb is also important for brooding in poultry house or coop.
Heat bulb: Features
- Provides a warm source of heat for growing animals (lambs, goat kids, chickens, piglets, ducks, puppies) or cold/convalescing animals.
- Made with high-quality glass that is resistant to high temperatures.
- Uses standard infrared (heat) bulbs, thus saves electric energy cost, thereby reducing production costs and complying with environmental sustainability requirements.
- Regular light/heat supply for juvenile livestock to keep warm as well as feed.
- It is very reliable with little maintenance required.
- Improves animal comfort and performance.
Heat placement for young livestock
- Heat is a critical component for getting animals started quickly and maintaining optimal health.
- During farrowing, nursery, and wean-to-finish, a micro-environment needs to be maintained within the pen to ensure that the young livestock is protected from chilling.
- Low pen temperatures can predispose to scours and other ailments thus giving rise to less healthy youngs.
- The provision of supplemental heat for livestock is characterized into:
- Top-down heat: Radiant heat from above the animals provides a zone of comfort for animals to go to the feeder/drinker then return under the heat source in the resting area.
- Bottom-up heat: Heat rises, so having heat under the juvenile animals tend to be more practical and economical as heat is not lost. This works well for farrowing and nursery animals.
