The Spanish Society of Sheep and Goat Specialists (SEOC) is a non-profit association, open to all professionals interested in these sectors, both meat production as dairy. SEOC promotes sheep and goat research and development and it was created to promote the exchange of knowledge and continuous formation of its members.
In year 1975, a group of lectures, researchers and technicians specialist in animal production set up the Spanish Society of Sheep. The Spanish Society of Sheep was born from the concern of these professionals by exchanging knowledge, promoting research, and above all, transfer the latest developments on this species to rural areas through its technicians.
In the IX Conference (1984), the field of action of the Society was expanded into the study of Caprine species, being the Conference held in Granada and Malaga the first that had the name with which we know it today: Spanish Society of Sheep and Goat Specialists (SEOC).
