OMAHA (DTN) -- Of the 40 locations DTN contacted that showed offers for domestic distillers dried grains (DDG) for the week ended June 18, posted offers were mixed and averaged $134 per ton, down $2 versus the prior week.

Wednesday's Energy Information Administration ethanol report noted that stocks were drawn down for an eighth straight week during the second week of June, falling to the lowest level since the final week of December 2019, as blending demand continues to increase. At 21.346 million barrels (bbl), domestic ethanol supply dropped 456,000 bbl in the week ended June 12, a 1.4% year-over-year supply deficit. Plant daily production increased only 4,000 barrels a day versus the prior week and lower than trader estimates of a 30,000- to 40,000-barrel-a-day uptick.

With ethanol production slowly on the rise, we are seeing more DDG available in the market, and feeders are beginning to return to add DDG to feed rations. Other corn byproduct prices have been fading, so DDG will need to continue to stay in line with those prices or risk being left out.

Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended June 18 was 113.35%. The value of DDG relative to soybean meal was 46.40%. The cost per unit of protein for DDG was $4.96, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $6.08.
