Quick tape

9002

Using a standard cloth measuring tape, measure around the "heart girth" behind the front legs. Pull the tape just snug. Do NOT use these weights as the basis for goat sales. Although not perfectly accurate, it is great for keeping track of general weight trends for your goats. For example, if one of them is losing weight it should alert you to look for health problems. It is accurate enough to use as a general guide for determining medicine dosages.
