NCGA Announces DDGS Report

Along with renewable fuel and feed groups, the National Corn Growers Association released report containing guidelines for analysis of distillers dried grains.

The National Corn Growers Association released a report today providing guidelines for the analysis of distillers dried grains with solubles and definitions of DDGS and condensed distillers solubles.

The report is the result of a year-long study funded by NCGA, the Renewable Fuels Association, and the American Feed Industry Association.

The report offers recommended test methods for determining the moisture, crude protein, crude fat and crude fiber content of DDGS, factors which are often sees as key determinants of the market value of DDGS. The lack of standardized test methods has led to varying results and uncertainty for buyers and sellers of distillers grains.

"The DDGS end user wants to know exactly what he's getting, and we think the use of voluntary 'standard' test methods is an important step forward in responding to the needs of DDGS customers," says Bruce Noel, chairman of NCGA's Ethanol Committee. "These guidelines help buyers, sellers and everyone else involved in the trade make apples to apples comparisons."
