#lifestyle Anlamb measuring cup size

We have a few lambs to look after and were given some Anlamb.. However the measuring cup was missing. Googling it everyone evades the question and tells you to weigh it.. Which is fine if you have kitchen scales handy. Anyway for those of you (and for me in future) the one I have is 1/3 cup (75ml).
