OMAHA (DTN) -- The domestic distillers dried grains (DDG) weekly average spot price from the 40 locations DTN contacted was steady at $140 per ton for the week ended Oct. 31.

Prices are mixed from various sellers again this week, but the higher corn basis and the delay to harvest is supporting the market in some states.

Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended Oct. 31 was at 100.51%. The value of DDG relative to soybean meal was at 45.99%. The cost per unit of protein for DDG was $5.19, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $6.41.

In its weekly export DDGS update, the U.S. Grains Council noted that higher CIF (cost, insurance and freight paid by the seller) NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) prices have paved the way for gains in the Chicago market as well as East Coast export offers.

"FOB (free on board -- the buyer pays for transportation of the goods) NOLA values are up $9 per metric ton (mt) this week for November shipment, sparking a $3/mt rise in values for spot Barge CIF NOLA product. The recent winter storm across the Plains and Midwest is reported to be partly responsible for the $16/mt increase in DDGS rail-delivered to the Pacific Northwest.

"Internationally, exporters note Indonesia has been actively securing U.S. product, and while Vietnamese purchases have been quiet, the bid/ask spread has narrowed considerably this week. Rates for 40-foot containers to Southeast Asia are up $2/mt from last week for November shipment."
