Default Those feeding Merrick (grain free)

We've switched Hans to Merrick (after trying a couple of foods, then going back to RC which he finally refused to eat). Thriving on it and loves it. We are feeding the Real Texas Beef + Sweet Potato variety.

I just want to make sure I'm calculating the amount of food correctly. He is somewhere between 35-40 lbs right now. It says on the bag that for a target weight of 40 lbs you feed 2 cups/day and increase by 25% for a puppy. Which would give us 2.5 cups a day and that's basically what he eats, maybe 3 if starving.

Or am I supposed to look at his FINAL target weight and use that? Seems weird to me because he'd never eat that much food at this stage.
Rough Collies - King (01/1994-01/2002) and Samson (2/14/2002-3/30/2014) - too good for this world
