This thesis aimed to identify the energy use within the Nova Scotia Layer Industry, through auditing and evaluating layer farms. Using the data collected, energy benchmarks were determined; providing a guide for achieving a measure of energy efficiency on farm. Focusing on lighting use within layer barns, this research aimed to identify how lighting is used and offer an innovative method of achieving reduced energy use without impacting hen performance or production levels.
