So, for those of you who are looking to stock up on some delicious cupboards-worth of food at once? Your dreams have come true! This 4.5-pound bag will contain close to 18 cups. In the same way, an 11 pounder has 44 servings. This is a lot of food. If you have a big appetite, you can get our 24 Pound Bag with 96 ounces of food – enough for lots of meals.

Calculate the weight in pounds

  1. There are 4 cups of dog food in a 24 lbs bag
  2. That’s about 1 cup per pound
  3. It takes about 2-5 minutes to eat the whole bag
  4. A cup is equal to 8 oz, so that would be 16 oz or 1/2 gallon per day for a medium-sized dog
  5. The average person eats 3 cups of cereal in one sitting, which is more than most dogs need in an entire day!
  6. Dogs should have two meals per day – breakfast and dinner – each consisting of half their daily amount of food (8oz)

Multiply by 3 to get cups of food per bag

The easiest way to determine how many cups of dog food you are buying is by multiplying the weight of one pound in the product description. For example, if you have a 12-pound bag that weighs three pounds on your scale at home, then this means 36 ounces will be equal to four cups. This can also be done with just about any other package size since most bags or cans contain roughly five pounds worth of kibble for dogs weighing 30 lbs or less.

Divide by 16 to find out how many cups are in 24 lbs

If you have a large dog, it is probably no surprise to eat over 30 lbs of food in one month. But how many cups are there? Let’s try to figure out the numbers together! One cup isn’t very much for humans, but dogs are tiny animals that need smaller portions. You can use this formula: 24 lbs / 16 = how many cups in one lb. As a result, you will find out that your dog needs about 0.75-0.85 cups of food per day (depending on the brand).

Round up or down based on the number of decimal places (you can round up if you want) 

If there are only two decimal places, round to the nearest whole number. For example :

  • 12 ounces = 0.35 pounds (rounds down to 0) * 20 ounces = 0.70 pounds (rounds up to one pound)
  • If there are three decimal places, round to the nearest whole number. For example:
  • 16 ounces = 0.48 pounds (rounds down to 0) * 20 ounces = 0.70 pounds (rounds up to one pound) *
  • If there are four or more decimal places, round two decimal places to the nearest even digit and drop any remaining digits after that point. For example :
  • Nineteen ounces = 0.62 pounds (rounds down to zero) * 22 ounces =0.77 pounds (rounded up to one pound)* The answer you’re looking for is 24lbs of dog food should be approximately six cups!

Find a conversion chart for tablespoons and teaspoons, which is usually one tablespoon = 3 teaspoons.

  • If there are 20 teaspoons per tablespoon, then there are 12 tablespoons per cup.
  • There are 16 ounces in one pound, so if you have 24 pounds of dog food, calculate how many cups that is by dividing it by 16 to get the result.


Did you know that a 24 lb bag of dog food contains about 12 cups? That’s enough for one month! To get this answer, we did some math and found out how many pounds were in the bag. We multiplied by 3 to determine how many cups there were per pound and then divided by 16 because one cup is 16 tablespoons or teaspoons. This gave us our final answer: 12 cups. Now, all we had to do was round up or down based on whether it has two decimal places (rounding up) or four decimal places (rounding down).
