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).
