From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Plastic airtight pet food container is the ideal solution for storing dog or cat food, other pet food, and more
  • Pet food bins have airtight seals and snap lock latches to keep out moisture and pests for secure dry food storage

As of this posting, this is showing a stated capacity of 42.7 quarts.  42.7 quarts = 10.6 gallons.  My rule of thumb for grain storage for unmiled malt is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 53 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate, actual storage capacity will vary.
