OMAHA (DTN) -- The DTN average price for domestic distillers dried grains (DDG) from 33 locations reporting for the week ended Sept. 9 was $197 per ton, down $4 from one week ago. Prices moved lower on average this week due in part to slowing exports out of the Gulf, leaving plants the need to find more homes in the domestic market nearby. Given the past nine weeks prior to last week showing a slowdown in plant production, supplies are not becoming burdensome.

Wednesday's Energy Information Administration report showed domestic inventory of ethanol posting a sixth straight weekly draw, falling to a 12-week low though production posted the first increase in over two months. Data showed overall production moved off a six-month low, up 18,000 barrels per day (bpd) or 2% to 923,000 bpd.

Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended Sep. 9 was 111.21%. The value of DDG relative to soybean meal was 58.58%, and the cost per unit of protein for DDG was $7.30, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $7.08.

In its weekly DDGS export price update, the U.S. Grains Council said: "Exporters and merchandisers report spotty offers and indications for September/October shipment from the U.S. Gulf, with ingredient traders offering the only true interest in assessing logistics or booking product. Roughly speaking, Barge CIF NOLA values are up $6 per metric ton (MT) this week while FOB Gulf offers are up $5/MT for October (based on scant indications) but November and December positions are steady/down $3/MT. Indications for 40-foot containers to Southeast Asia are wide-ranging this week, but the general trend seems to be sideways."

USGC added, "Please note that FOB Gulf markets will likely be more volatile than normal as the industry works to recover full capacity in New Orleans area export facilities. There are significant questions about elevator capacity and availability and the DDGS market will have to compete with other grains as the U.S. new-crop harvest approaches. Consequently, both flat prices and spreads versus other markets may see greater than normal volatility."
