DDG Weekly Update
Mary Kennedy 10/23 11:03 AM

OMAHA (DTN) -- The average price for domestic distillers dried grains (DDG) from the 40 locations DTN contacted with spot offers for the week ended Oct. 22 was $178 per ton, up $13 on average from the prior week. DDG prices have surged the past week, and some buyers note that the strength in price continues for the rest of this year. CIF NOLA DDGS prices are up $20 per ton this week, due in part to strong demand and logistic issues as the brisk harvest is also creating demand for barges.

Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended Oct. 22 was 119.74%, well above the five-year average of 109%. The value of DDG relative to soybean meal was 46.55%. The cost per unit of protein for DDG was $6.59, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $8.05.

The Energy Information Administration reported for the week ended Oct. 16 domestic ethanol inventories fell for the third time in four weeks, down 1.5% as plant production fell after two weeks of higher output. Domestic ethanol supply dropped 287,000 barrels in the week profiled, 7.9% below the same week a year ago, while ethanol plant production dropped from a five-week high, falling 2.6% and 8.3% lower than the corresponding week in 2019.
