Figuring your pigs weight without a scale.Get a measurment(girth squared) behind the front legs and over the shoulder.Multiply that by itself.Next you need another measurement(length) from just behind the ears to the base of the tail.Your problem will look like this  Girth Squared x Length.take the result of that and divide it by 400.This should get you close like with in 3% one way or the other.The vet probaly does a calculation like this is his or her head just looking at your piggo.Good luck with your pig...
