OMAHA (DTN) -- Of the 40 locations DTN contacted that showed offers for domestic distillers dried grains (DDG) for the week ended May 28, posted offers averaged $141 per ton, down $2 versus the prior week.

The cash corn price has improved on average versus one week ago and basis has strengthened, but that has had little effect on current DDG prices. However, with DDG prices moving lower recently and plant production picking up, cattle and hog producers have started to use DDG again in rations.

Based on the average of prices collected by DTN, the value of DDG relative to corn for the week ended May 28 was 120.55%. The value of DDG relative to soybean meal was 49.59%. The cost per unit of protein for DDG was $5.22, compared to the cost per unit of protein for soybean meal at $5.99.

Wednesday's Energy Information Administration ethanol report showed for the week ended May 22 that ethanol inventory was drawn down for the fifth consecutive week falling 400,000 bbl, to a 23.2 million bbl 19-week low, with supply 16.2% below a record high reached on April 17. Plant production outpaced the gain in blending activity for the week, up 61,000 barrels per day (bpd) to a 724,000 bpd eight-week high, the fourth consecutive week with higher output after falling to a more than 10-year low at 537,000 bpd. During the four-week period ended May 22, plant production averaged 38.2% below one year ago.
