The Kintampo Goat Breeding Station is situated at Kintampo in the Brong Ahafo Region.
It was established in 1972 as sheep breeding centre under the then Animal Husbandry Department. It became Goat Breeding Station in 1992 under the Animal Production Directorate of MOFA.
The station is mandated to be the focal point for the development of the goat industry in Ghana. It is the only center in the country for breed improvement of the West African Dwarf Goat (WADG).
The main objective of the station is to establish and sustain a national goat nucleus breeding centre.
The station provides improved breeding goats to farmers and carries out on farm trials in collaboration with the universities and research stations in Ghana to formulate extension packages for dissemination by the Agricultural Extension Agents.
The station also supports the training of deprived groups especially women who are interested in goat production and management.
