The SSSP organizes an annual scientific meeting at a different location each year, trying to visit and cover all the diversity of pastoral and productive systems of Spain. The first meetings were held in Zaragoza (1960), Galicia, Burgos, Santander, Cáceres-Salamanca, Pamplona-Jaca-Francia, Palencia-Zamora-Valladolid, Badajoz-Elvas, Gerona and Sevilla. There have been 52 meetings until now, with seven of them of an international nature: Madrid 1975 hosted the 6th General Meeting of the European Grassland Federation; Badajoz 2006 hosted the 21st General Meeting of the EGF; in the years 1980 and 1989 (Badajoz-Elvas), 2000 (Bragança - La Coruña - Lugo) and 2010 (Zamora-Miranda do Douro), the four Iberian Meetings of Pastures and Fodders took place. In 2001 the I Iberoamerican Forum on Pastures was held in Alicante.

All the papers and communications are published in the Proceedings of the Scientific Meetings of the SSSP, that are sent free to the members of the society.
