OMAHA (DTN) -- The domestic distillers dried grains (DDG) average spot price from the 40 locations DTN contacted was unchanged at $140 per ton for the week ended July 25. DDG spot prices were mixed this week and feel lackluster overall, especially with the recent heat wave slowing nearby demand.

Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended July 25 was at 93.67%. The value of DDG relative to soybean meal was at 46.07%. The cost per unit of protein for DDG was $5.19, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $6.40.

The midweek Energy Information Administration report noted that ethanol supply in the United States increased for the fourth consecutive week through July 19, up 300,000 barrels (bbl) to a 3-1/2 month high at 23.7 million bbl, while domestic plant output fell to a 2-1/2 month low.

In its weekly export DDGS update, the U.S. Grains Council stated, "Prices for DDGS CIF NOLA barge and FOB U.S. Gulf are lower this week as traders keep the ethanol co-product competitive with lower corn and soymeal values. Merchandisers are reporting a significant increase in international buying interest as corn futures have stabilized in recent days. Exporters note Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Bangladesh have been active markets for both inquiries and sales. Prices for 40-foot containers to Southeast Asia are averaging $244/MT, steady with last week's values."
