Outdoor lighting for extreme cold weather

What is the recommended lighting for a barn where the temperatures will be below zero throughout the winter? The barn needs the overhead light fixtures replaced. I understand flourescent lighting doesn't respond will to very cold temperatures.

We need to run a series of hanging lights to properly illuminate the space.

I read some where about 12 V DC Halogen bulbs. Is this the right approach? Use them in single arc lights hanging from the ceiling?

Just run a string of ordinary Type A light bulbs.

Your best bet would be standard voltage vapor lights. Either Metal halide or High Pressure Sodium (Metal halide provides a more pure light.)
