A couple of years ago, recommended by my experienced goat friends, I bought a goat-weight tape from Hoeggers's Supply. I recently read a couple posts from bloggers wondering how to approximate a dairy goat's weight. I think the weight tape is more for standard-size dairy goats and I have Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats (however, all our goats are fat), but it gives me some idea about their weight, when I dose for wormers, etc. * You put the tape just behind the front legs and come up around the body - heart girth. * http://www.hoeggergoatsupply.com/xcart/product.php?productid=3669&cat=0&page=1 Use this handy, easy-to-read measuring tape to determine the approximate weight of your goats. This specially designed tape converts your goat’s heart girth measurement into body weight. Made of sturdy, wipe-clean vinyl. * Any feedback would be appreciated.
