All feed doesn't weight the same!
The weight per volume of pelleted (or sweet) feed varies depending on the brand and type of feed your are measuring. The only way to accurately measure 1 pound of southern states pellets compared to 1 pound of purina pellets is on a scale .... try it out. Using a scale you'll get different volumes, using this "sure scoop" you'll get the same volume for each type. With some feed companies/stores the weight will vary depending on the batch you get (for seasonal ingredient changes), so not measuring by weight will result in changing the amount of nutrition your horse gets.

I'm really happy I decided to purchase this scoop. I weighed out my Triple Crown 30 in it, and it was dead on (lucky me!). It helps me keep track of what each horse is getting, when before we measured in 'half a coffee can'. Just really convenient. Thanks smartpak!

Nice to have
It's handy for knowing exactly what you're feeding. It'd be nicer if it was one level scoop for 1 pound.
In hindsight, Not really worth the money.

Easy to read, scoop, and dump. I use it when measuring my horses grain to see how many pounds it weighs.

Very user friendly!
These measuring cups are great. I purchased two of these to replace my plastic kitchen measuring cups that keep breaking. The handle is stout and they scoop the grain easily. The markings are clear and I like that it also gives you the weight when filled to the rim. Very nice to have a side for pelleted feed and a side for sweet feed. I will be ordering a couple more!

I love this scoop! It is perfect and has a good feel to it. Very accurate to mass of the feed as well. I like that instead of the typical quart scoops you are actually getting the same amount of feed every time. Also stores nicely. Worth the money.
