Default How many pounds of corn will fit in a 5 gallon bucket

Just bought a couple of these 5 gallon bucket feeders and was wondering how many pounds of corn will fit in one. Any ideas?

one gallon equals 8.33 lbs respectively. 5 gallon pail should hold 41.56 lbs considering the rounding up and down on the math.
Hope that helps, Take care and be safe,

About half of a 50 lb bag of corn. So around 25 lbs. Obviously we all have different size buckets

I had one of the Walmart Remington brand bucket feeders that was stolen after I took it down last fall. It would hold all of a 40 lb bag if it were filled to the top.

This......

I weighed some @ 33 pounds, bucket leveled one inch below rim. Moisture and test weight of the product are the variables.

No such thing as different sized "5 gallon" buckets. The OP was asking how much corn would fit in a "5 gallon bucket"?

Some feeder manufacturers must use 6 gallon buckets if a 5 only holds 33 lb.

I should have been more clear, I bought a used feeder with a manufacturer bucket (which may be 6 gallons) and I put a feeder motor on a store bought 5 gallon bucket.

Most 5 gallon buckets will actually hold more than 5 gallons...If it's filled to the top. Like I said..."MOST".

This is like the question I can never get anyone to answer...How many aluminum cans does it take to make a pound?
