I have often thought the same, cheap packager stunt myself many times, only to eventually find the elusive cup handily available at the bottom of the bag.

Well I am almost at the bottom of the sack...will look in the morning...How many sacks of replacer Fern do you allow for calves?...thanks..KAt

Generally about two. You should be feeding your calf some calf primer already. Keep it in front of it to taste and nibble on. When it's appitite starts eating more mix in some grain slowly. To much to soon can irritate its young tummy. May take two/three 50# bags getting thwcalf to pure grain. Some good alfafa is good for calf, timothy grass hay is good also. Easing the calf along they will grow faster, and finish better, and have a pretty appearance. I figure the prettier the tastier.
Enjoy your animals, listening and watching them talk. They can be a gas!

...missed by a nose. Why buy the replacer when we could just let Hug-a-bug nurse 4 at a time? Hug-a-bug was a Holstein cross who wouldn't let her milk down for the mechanical milker OR a person - only calves.
Nope. We had peanut butter jars. The glass ones. Mom was devastated when they went to plastic.

Lol! The folks still have a stack of those in the cupboard--I've drank many a glass of milk out of them. Not to mention every ball cap you own has either a tractor brand or a seed company on it.
