Measuring Tape Conversion Chart

The measurement should be taken at the heart girth.  This is just behind front legs up to withers, but not including the shoulder blades. It should be snug, but not overly tight. These are reasonable estimates of the weight of standard dairy goats (not for pygmies or nigerian dwarves).  If done properly, in research these have been proven to be accurate within 5 pounds, plus/minus.
