We study 1+1 field-generalizations of the rational and elliptic Gaudin models. For sl(N) case we introduce equations of motion and L-A pair with spectral parameter on the Riemann sphere and elliptic curve. In sl(2) case we study the equations in detail and find the corresponding Hamiltonian densities. The n-site model describes n interacting Landau-Lifshitz models of magnets. The interaction depends on position of the sites (marked points on the curve). We also analyze the 2-site case in its own right and describe its relation to the principal chiral model. We emphasize that 1+1 version impose a restriction on a choice of flows on the level of the corresponding 0+1 classical mechanics.

Key words: integrable systems; field theory; Gaudin models.
