Autumn feeding of these birds is not much different from the summer. This is due to the fact that they often spend their entire pastime in the warmer regions until late autumn, as in the summer.

This fattening is needed to prepare the bird before the onset of the period of carcass, during which it usually loses weight. With the advent of autumn, the ration of a goose should be maximally saturated with juicy and nutritious carbohydrates. The basis of such feed is well served by beets and potatoes.

- boiled potatoes or sugar beets - 500 g;
- carrot - about 100 g;
- hay mash - 100-150 g;
- mineral feed - up to 25 g.
The other part of the diet is concentrates. And mineral feeds can be given not only with mixes, but also in pure form.
