    I feed a variety of foods, so the bags can range anywhere from 25-30lbs, and it lasts us about 4-6 weeks. I go through 2 1/2 cups of dry food a day.

    From the various companies I've looked at that have cups/bag listed on their website/packaging...I would say it averages about 3 cups/pound - some are more, some are less.

    28.6lb bag lasts us about 3 weeks.

    Gage gets 3.5-4 cups a day.
    Bristol gets 3/4 cup a day.
    Diesel gets 1 cup a day.

    Now in the winter they all eat more and in the summer somedays they don't eat at all.

    A 40lb bag lasts me about 1.5 months to 2 months depending on the season.

    In the Fall/Winter:

    Takoda gets 3.5-4 cups
    Beau gets 2-2.5 cups

    This is depending on how cold the winter is going to be how fat I need them.


    In the Spring/Summer:

    Takoda gets 3 cups
    Beau gets 1 cup

    Takoda looks scrawny with anything lower then 3 cups dumb dog never stops moving and Beau looks like a walking table with anything over 1 cup.

    30lb bag last Ronon (80lbs) and Casper (115lbs) 1 month
    40lb bag last Joey (70lbs) puppy and Jack (20lbs) 6 weeks
    1 4lb last Pongo 22lbs 1 month
    1 6lb last Rocky 25lbs 1 month
    1 15lb last my foster pup 1 month 50lbs

    It would be nice if the could all eat the same thing, but never seems to work that way for me.

    Oh, yah, and Rosey was about 40lbs, ate around 2 scant cups a day of Fromm grain inclusive, and a 15kg bag lasted probably around 6 weeks
