Light Bulb Failures Currently Plaguing Poultry Industry
U.S. retailers & distributors have spent years pressuring factories to attain the lowest possible prices, with complete disregard for quality in products they are sourcing. For years, these companies have hidden behind misleading consumer warranties to entice consumers to buy their products. This disregard for producing quality bulbs especially for commercial use is driven solely on their bottom line. Unfortunately, this marketing strategy is coming back to haunt them and suppliers are getting very concerned by all the returns they are experiencing, let alone upset growers.
From and agricultural standpoint, farmers across the country have been expressing significant frustration with flickering bulbs, controller issues and failures with the bulbs in their poultry houses. Light failures are affecting production resulting in weakened ROI's. Farmers electing to bypass commercial distributors, using discounted bulbs are struggling the most. A quality bulb allows farmers to maintain lighting consistency in their houses while enjoying less maintenance in the long run, resulting in more profit with the chances to improve their turn in production.
With less than .2% failure rate supporting our 50,000 hours warranty, IBA is now experiencing an increase in demand for our commercially engineered poultry bulb. We spent years in development working with top industry executives and engineers creating a bulb specific to the poultry industry, with over 10+ years of success in poultry houses.

IBA's poultry bulbs are the only dimmable LED bulb that has been specifically engineered for the unique needs of this specialized industry. After three years of stringent testing by major agricultural universities in this country, and eight years or more of on-site use in major poultry brand supply houses such as Pilgrim's, Perdue, George’s Foods and Tysons, performance results have been exceptional, resulting in happier staff, happier chickens and a corresponding increase in profits to your bottom line.
Our hands-on experience with growers helped us study kelvin, foot candles, light patterns, compatibility to controllers, dirt build-up and cleaning, temperature issues for cold and hot climates, bulb flickering, and most importantly, the smooth consistent range of the bulbs’ ability to dim. This information allows us to manufacture a commercial grade product warrantied for 50,000 burning hours.
