Daylight improves the well-being of animals kept in large stables, which is increasingly important in the agricultural sector today. There are now various animal welfare labels that place high demands on the indoor environment of large animal stables and shelters and the provision of daylight is an extremely important requirement.
Daylight is cheaper
A daylight system replaces artificial lighting during the daylight hours which can provide significant energy consumption reductions and savings. In addition to increasing the profitability of the company by saving on energy costs, daylight improves the well-being of the animals and the sustainability and environmental profile of the company which could lead to new customers as there is now an increasing demand from consumers for sustainable animal products.
Standards and labels

In addition, there are various quality assurance systems (such as IKB Nederland) that outline requirements for the manner of production. Skal (for organic production) and Maatlat Duurzame Veehouderij (MDV) also set strict requirements regarding daylight.
