In the fall, reindeer in Lapland and other parts of northern Finland are typically fed and prepared for the upcoming reindeer roundups. Reindeer roundups, also known as reindeer herding, involve the collection and management of reindeer herds by their owners.

The fall feeding period is important for the reindeer, as it helps them build up their fat reserves before the harsh winter months. During this time, the reindeer are usually given access to natural grazing areas, such as grassy meadows and forests, as well as supplementary feed such as hay, grains, and mineral supplements. This helps ensure that they are healthy and strong enough to withstand the cold temperatures and lack of food in the winter.

Once the feeding period is over, the reindeer roundups begin. During the roundups, the reindeer are gathered and sorted according to their owners, and some may be sold or sent to slaughter. The roundups are an important part of the traditional Sami culture and way of life, and are still practiced by many reindeer herders in Lapland and other northern regions of Finland.
