   DTN Weekly DDG Price Slightly Lower on Average

   DTN's weekly average spot price for domestic distillers dried grains was 
lower versus one week ago.

   OMAHA (DTN) -- The DTN average price for domestic distillers dried grains 
(DDG) from 33 locations reporting for the week ended Sept. 16 was $196 per ton, 
down $1 on average from one week ago. Prices were slightly lower this week as 
buyers have moved to the sidelines for now. In addition, DDG supplies are 
starting to creep higher with another increase in ethanol plant production last 

   The export market is still volatile as Gulf export terminals continue to 
come back online post Hurricane Ida, which made landfall on Aug. 29. Besides 
Cargill Westwego, Dreyfus, Bunge and ADM midstream, we were hearing Thursday 
that Zen-Oh Grain in Convent may have started up again as well. A freight 
broker reported there were 15 grain vessels loading for export at reopened Gulf 
terminals and midstream rigs this week, versus the three loaded at the end of 
last week and that it's still a slow process.

   Wednesday's Energy Information Administration (EIA) report showed domestic 
inventory of ethanol was again drawn down, falling to a 14-week low through 
Sept. 10, though demand dropped to an over four-month low and production held 
higher. EIA reported overall production continued higher a second week, up 
14,000 barrels per day (bpd) or 1.5% to a four-week high 937,000 bpd.

   Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative 
to corn for the week ended Sept. 9 was 103.65%. The value of DDG relative to 
soybean meal was 57.61% and the cost per unit of protein for DDG was $7.26, 
compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $7.16.

   In its weekly DDGS export price update, the U.S. Grains Council said: "On 
the export market, DDGS values are quoted steady or $4 to $5 metric ton (mt) 
higher this week, depending on the source. Some brokers report offers moved 
higher earlier this week, but it remains unclear if stronger trade interest 
drove the rally or supply-side dynamics. Regardless, FOB Gulf offers are steady 
this week at $265/mt while November and December positions are up $5/mt. Prices 
for 40-foot containers to Southeast Asia are mostly steady to slightly higher 
this week, with rates to Vietnam, Malaysia, and Myanmar leading the way."
