Measure of sustainable livestock farming

MDV barns have a lower environmental impact and are equipped with measures for better animal health and welfare. In this way, an MDV barn contributes to making livestock farming more sustainable.

Livestock barns that obtain the Maatlat Duurzaam Veehouderij certificate can participate in the MIA and Vamil tax schemes. There is also a link for dairy barns with the Green Projects Scheme. Livestock farmers must obtain a number of points in order to obtain the MDV Certificate. The 30 points, which are awarded to Ionization with carbon brushes, contribute to this.

In addition to installing ionization only, FreshlightAgri also offers the option of combining this with full-spectrum LED lighting. In that case, additional MDV points will be awarded.
