DTN's average weekly spot price for DDG was 2 cents higher at $108 per ton, as the market saw support from news out of Vietnam last week that they will once again allow U.S. DDGS in to their country. (DTN file photo by Elaine Shein)

OMAHA (DTN) -- CIF NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) DDGS prices were stronger from one week ago, with September at $144 to $148, and October through December at $144 to $150. The market is firming since the announcement last Friday that Vietnam will accept imports of U.S. DDGS once again.

The Plant Protection Department of Vietnam (PPD) noted in their announcement of resumption of U.S. DDGS imports, that phosphine will be acceptable for treatment of DDGS, corn and wheat from the U.S prior to exporting the product to Vietnam. In a letter sent to APHIS and industry leaders, PPD Director General Hoang Trung said the phytosanitary certificate needed to include date, location of the fumigation, fumigant, duration and temperature of treatment.

"However, if any interception of living quarantine pest of Vietnam, PPD will apply the phytosanitary measures according to our regulation," concluded Trung. Here is a link to the requirements for U.S. DDGS, corn and wheat for export to Vietnam: http://www.dtn.com/…

A merchandiser told me most of the demand for DDGS is for containers vs. bulk shipments and the Vietnam news came at just the right time. Plants had been building supplies because they were running at a faster pace due to good margins and with fresh demand coming from Vietnam it will help alleviate any plants burdened with product. Another merchandiser noted that there will be delays at the Port in Savannah, Georgia, where some DDGS containers are shipped from, because it will be shut down this weekend due to Hurricane Irma.

The DTN average dried distillers grains (DDG) spot price from the 39 locations DTN collects bids from was $108 for the week ended Sept. 7, 2 cents higher on average from one week ago.

Based on the average of bids collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended Sept. 7 was at 88.48%, and the value of DDG relative to soybean meal was at 35.71%. The cost per unit of protein for DDG was $4.00, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $6.37.
