"Easy, handy and fast"
This is product is clearly labelled for use on fullsize dairy goats, and it works surprisingly well. Don't expect it to work on minis or pygmies. Your mileage may vary with boers.
I use it on my boer goats and found its pretty close When weighed on a scale. It gives a good enough idea for documenting weight gain on kids a month
"Didn't work well for me"
My goats are small dwarfs. I felt the weights were pretty far off. It may be I could use it then weigh them to compare and then deduct based on a percentage. Pretty much a waste of money for my uses
