According to a Kansas State University animal scientist, the recent lower prices in DDGS suggest producers may want to take a second look at its use in pig diets.
The price of DDGS in Kansas is still higher
than it is in some other areas, he added. But, that could change with increased
ethanol production. “A quick rule of thumb for a general evaluation is that if
the DDGS price is the same as corn´s, it will create enough savings to justify
its use in the diet,” Tokach said. The breakeven for DDGS can move from 110 to
130% of the corn price, depending on the cost of other ingredients.
