Dr. Goodman Kantanka Sarfo


Research Areas/Interests


Goodman Kantanka Sarfo (PhD) is a practising Animal Scientist in Ghana. He obtained a BSc in Agriculture Technology (animal science option) from the University for Development Studies, Tamale, Ghana. His national service with the Animal Production Directorate (APD-Ejura Sheep Breeding Station) motivated him to pursue his MSc at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana. With a growing passion for the animal industry (Poultry Production and Nutrition), Goodman Kantanka Sarfo joined Agricare Limited (a leading feed mill in Ghana) as the Technical Sales Team Leader. The desire to solve farmers feed challenges was clear and supported by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) through the Africa RISING project for a PhD scholarship award. His PhD with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi was purely about addressing the challenges with guinea fowl production in northern Ghana. Keets mortality emerging as a key challenge in guinea fowl production, Goodman Kantanka Sarfo decided to adapt the gut-health approach in disease prevention and treatment. His good working relationship with feed millers in the country (Agricare Limited and Boris B Limited) gave him an oppotunity to study poultry nutrition trend(s) at the Center of Excellence for Poultry Science, University of Arkansas, the United States of America through the Amplifier project.

He is currently a lecturer with the Department of Animal Science, KNUST. His area of research and reading is about employing the use of non-conventional/agro-industrial by-products in poultry feed formulation and minimal or zero usage of antibiotics in poultry production.
