XXXIX National Conference and XV International of the Spanish Society of Sheep and Goat, Ourense, Spain, 17-19 September 2014
The Spanish society of sheep and goat (SEOC) returns to celebrate its annual Congress, this time in the historic city of Ourense. In this Edition, the “Auditorio Municipal of Ourense” will host the XXXIX National Conference and XV international.
Following the guideline of previous conferences, but improving year after year, speakers of high professional reputation in the field of small ruminants have been invited, which will give us information on the latest advances in knowledge regarding these species. As a novelty, this year we have introduced a monographic Conference on Mastitis by express request of the sector. Furthermore, a very practical topic is going to be treated in the satellite symposium: “Performing a necropsy”.
Sociedad Española de Ovinotecnia y Caprinotecnia – The Spanish Society of Sheep and Goat (SEOC) is a non-profit, open to all professionals with an interest in sheep and/or goats, both meat and milk production.
In 1975, a group of teachers, researchers and technicians in the field of animal production set up the Spanish Society of Sheep. The Spanish Society of Sheep was born from the concern of these professionals to exchange knowledge, promote research and above all, translate the latest developments on this species to the rural world through their technicians. In its IX Conference (1984), the field of action of the Society was expanded into the study of Caprine species, and the organization was renamed, the Spanish Society of Sheep and Goat (SEOC).
The International Goat Association promotes goat research and development for the benefit of humankind, to alleviate poverty, to promote prosperity and to improve the quality of life.
