Reports On Grain Markets, Ethanol, DDGS Offer Unique Information To Value Chain

The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) compiles a series of weekly reports to keep customers around the world and stakeholders in the United States informed about the latest supply and demand factors related to U.S. coarse grains, co-products like distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) and ethanol.

These specialized reports each include highlights of global grain flows and provide key statistics for specific markets. All three are delivered directly to customers and members most interested in the information and available online.

“Open and transparent information flows are critical to keeping markets working and to building relationships with fellow members of the grains value chain, abroad and at home,” said Cary Sifferath USGC senior director of global programs.

“Our weekly reports aim to provide accurate and efficient information, particularly to those who do not always have to access to it from other sources, and to anyone looking for a quick summary of key data.”

The three specialized reports published weekly include:

Market Perspectives: Market Perspectives is a weekly publication that offers readers information about current coarse grain markets including price, weather and freight data important for buying U.S. grains and their co-products.

DDGS Weekly Market Report: The DDGS Weekly Market Report provides timely information on markets for U.S. DDGS, DDGS export figures, shipping information and USGC news. The report is a trade- and customer-servicing tool used by U.S. agribusinesses as well international feed and food grains/feed ingredient importers, processors and end-users.

Ethanol Market and Pricing Data Report: The Ethanol Marketing and Pricing Data Report informs global fuel stakeholders of current ethanol, fuels and co-product pricing as well as updates on tariff rates and other market resources.

In addition to the weekly reports, the Council offers resources like the Feed Grains In All Forms Portal, which allows users to access export data, corn equivalent data and U.S. dollar values for individual countries and the world.

The specialized newsletters, portal and other resources are part of the Council’s efforts to provide resources that explain the information, trends and statistics needed to track the flow of global grain trade.
