Welcome letter

Dear Colleagues,

The Spanish Association for Sheep and Goat Production (SEOC), as member of the International Sheep Veterinary Association (ISVA), in representation of Spanish Sheep Veterinarians, was elected to organize the 10th International Sheep Veterinary Congress (ISVC) in 2023 from 6th – 10th march , in Seville. We are enthusiastically organizing the Congress to which we would kindly like to invite you to attend.

There are several reasons for attending this event:
  • Spain is the third country in Europe with a census of 16 million sheep, behind the Russian Federation and the United Kingdom. Third country also in terms of meat and milk production, with just over one hundred thousand tons of meat and half a million tons of milk. The high productions in these species give an idea of the diversification of management and production systems that attendees will be able to see in the pre-tour and post-tour that we are organizing. This high specialization will also be reflected in the contents of the scientific program.
  • The geographical position of Spain in the South of Europe, with excellent communications with all over the world, will facilitate the attendance of participants from the five continents, especially from South American countries because there is no language barrier.
  • Our experience with the organization of the International Sheep and Goat Medicine conferences since 1975, managing more than 400 attendees and around 30 commercial sponsors yearly.
  • The good infrastructures of the city of Seville, its extraordinary communications and the stable political situation of Spain within the European Union, as well as the fantastic facilities where the Congress will be held, are some factors that will strongly facilitate a wide international participation.
  • Seville has been chosen as the world’s best tourist destination in 2018, according to the Lonely Planet travel guide, being considered a very suggestive city for its rich historical and artistic heritage. This bi-millenary city has the largest historic center in Spain, with a rich gastronomy, welcoming people and mild climate, which invite you to get lost in its streets and squares.
  • The venue of the Congress offers all kind of technical facilities as a guarantee for successfully develop a solid and attractive scientific programme. Moreover, the venue and the city offer the most appropriate conditions and the best environment for the social events of the Congress.
The help and support of the Seville University, the Conference of the Deans of the Spanish Veterinary Faculties, the Mayor of Seville, the General Council of Veterinary Associations of Spain, the Andalusian Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Food and the Natural Environment, in addition to a significant number of sponsoring companies, who have supported the organization of this event.
