The heating lamp for growing livestock delivers “top-down” heat intensity in relation to the distance from the floor area. It features a brass base to minimize corrosion and hardened pyrex glass which is resistant to shattering (when in contact with liquids). When heat lamps are used for brooding, heat travels to the sow (and a warm zone for piglets) as well as the chicks in the brooding area. It is, however, important to restrain and discourage the sow from getting unrestricted access to the resting piglets as this reduces chances of crushing or laid-ons. Thus, restraining the sow during the farrowing period informs the need for the farrowing crate . For poultry, this lamp works well with the brooder guards.
Heat is a critical component for getting animals started quickly and maintaining optimal health. During farrowing, nursery, and wean-to-finish, as well as brooding, a micro-environment needs to be maintained within the pen to ensure juveniles are protected from chilling-which could result in mortalities and reduced performance.
Heat lamps and heat bulbs are cheap and widely available for raising baby chicks.
