DTN's average weekly spot price for DDG was unchanged the past week at $106 per ton. (DTN file photo by Elaine Shein)

The DTN average DDG spot price was unchanged for the week ended Nov. 17 at $106 with three price declines ranging from $2 to $5 per ton. Of the 37 locations from which DTN collects spot prices, three were lower, one was higher than the prior week, and the balance of the prices were unchanged. DDG trading has been light this week and as runtimes remain strong, we could see supplies become a burden and pressure prices lower for at least the rest of the month. A lot will depend on the cold, snowy weather forecasted for the next week and if feeders will increase feed intakes and come to the market for spot purchases. Also, if the cash corn price moves lower, DDG will likely follow to stay competitive in rations as other corn by products prices compete with inclusion rates in feed.

CIF NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) DDGS prices were lower for the week ended Nov. 17 with November prices down 3 cents to down 5 cents vs. one week ago and are at 143. Prices for December lower as well and are at 140 to 143. Export markets are flat and as we get closer to December, there is still uncertainty surrounding Vietnam's next move will be, which has put a damper on the export market for now.

The value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended Nov. 17 was higher at 86.78% vs. 86.40% the prior week and the value of DDG relative to soybean meal was slightly lower at 34.03% vs. 34.04% the prior week. The cost per unit of protein for DDG at $4.24 compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal which was at $6.56.
