Reindeer husbandry - enclosed grazing sites
The grazing pasture dataset shows areas enclosed with fences where semi-domesticated reindeer are collected together/kept for feeding or in anticipation of being driven into enclosed work areas for branding or slaughter, for example. The maps are to be regarded as an illustration of how the reindeer industry primarily and normally uses these areas. The Act on reindeer husbandry (the Reindeer Husbandry Act) controls the rights and obligations of reindeer herders in relation to land use.
