In the Husbandry section of the goatwisdom web site, there is a chart whereby one can use a cloth measuring tape to establish a rough estimate of the goat's weight. Having recently purchased a livestock scale, I have found that there needed to be a correction--at least for my Nubian/Boer cross does. Therefore, I've added a second chart with the new corrected (and heavier) weights. As mentioned there, the truth may lie somewhere in between depending on the build of various breeds. Accurate weights are important when establishing dosages of various medicines, such as wormers.
