More DDGS to Morocco and Tunisia

Morocco and Tunisia will be increasing their DDGS imports, according to Dr. David Hutcheson, U.S. Grains Council consultant and ruminant nutritionist.

According to Shultz, U.S. DDGS imports made by Morocco and Tunisia totalled 60,000 metric tons in 2007, compared to 27 metric tons imported in 2006. An increasing amount of these imports will be headed toward new beef feedlots that are being built in these countries.

Succes in Israel
DDGS is already been utilized successfully in Israel where the market is mature and the feed milling sector more sophisticated. "All the importers and feedmillers are very comfortable formulating these co-products and stated very clearly that they value these products as an important component of their feed matrix," Shultz said. "They said imports will continue to grow as the availability of DDGS increases and they become more competitive in the export market."

Israel imported 71,000 tons of U.S. DDGS in 2007.
