Anti Foie Gras ALF stuff

If the ethical method (exploiting the migratory gorging) can produce a decent result, could the year round production not be achieved by fooling the geese into thinking it is autumn?

Presumably the pineal gland has some influence as in humans? So if the geese are kept inside for the few weeks it is required in an autumnal environment (lower light levels and temperature etc.) would this work?

I'll presume it's not as simple as that or else it would have been done by now.

Those with greater knowledge please educate me.
