Does anyone by chance know how many cups there are in a 44 pound bag of Eukanuba Premium Performance 30-20? Thanks

a cup is a measurement of volume....a pound is a measurement of weight

I know that, come on Bonman, give me a little credit here... I am trying to figure out how long a 44# bag will last based on how many cups I feed per day.

Ok then let me put my nerdy cap on...

according to wiki answers

5 cups weigh between 1.8Lbs to 2.2 Lbs. That implies that one Lbs of dog food can give 2.3 to 2.7 cups.

I get 21 days @ 9 cups/day on 44 lbs of Euk 30/20
So to answer the question.,,
21x9= 189

BTW: I wonder what Wikipedia says about the weight of 5 cups of lead shot vs 5 cups of goose down?

At 9 cups per day, are you feeding more than one dog?

This is pretty darn close assuming a couple of kibbles off on each cup. I get 3.8 oz per cup that I weighed out so 185 cups in a 44# bag but most people don't exactly do a cup anyway.

feathers. gold is measured in troy ounces and troy pounds. 1 troy ounce is 480 grains. 12 troy ounces=1 troy pound or 5760 grains.
1 standard pound is 16 oz or 7000 grains.


now the other trick is to say which weighs more an ounce of gold or ounce of feathers. then it would be the gold as like stated above a troy ounce is 480 grains but a standard ounce is 437.5 grains

i think i read somewhere that eukanuba's 33# large breed adult and puppy food average like 150 cups

I feed 4 cups per day, and I normally get around 5 weeks out of a bag.

Expected Analysis Nutrient/1000 kcal ME Nutrient/8 oz cup
Metabolizable Energy/kg 3919 kcal/kg 379.53 kcal/kg
Metabolizable Energy/lb 1781.36 kcal/lb 379.53 kcal/lb
Density 3.41 oz/cup 255.17 gm 96.84 gm

From the Eukanuba web site 3.41 Oz per cup. 379.53 calories per cup.

16 ounces x 44 pounds = 704 ounces in 44lb/bag
704/3.41 ounces= 206.451613 cups per 44lb bag

There is 78,380 calories in a 44lb bag

Based on the other figures provided, you must be using the 33# bag.

4 x 7 x 5 = 140 cups

140 / 33 x 44 = 187 cups (about what others have said they get from the 44# bag.

Either that or your cups are just bigger than the other cups.

while running the Iditarod(SP) sled dogs consume up to 10,000 calories a day which would be the equivilant of 26 cups of 30/20 a day
