USGC Promoting DDGS in South Korea

Seminar on feed technology presented to end-users.

The U.S. Grains Council's manager of international operations for distiller's dried grains with solubles Dan Keefe and Ted Hattori of U.S. BioEnergy spent the week in South Korea promoting DDGS. They presented a seminar on U.S. DDGS production, utilization and price perspectives to around 110 end-users.

"Their presentations were clear, to the point, well delivered and received," says Byong Ryol Min, USGC director in Korea. "All participants expressed their appreciation to the Council for being their trusted source of information."

The Korean Society of Animal Nutrition and Feedstuffs organized the forum with sponsorship from the Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Korea Feed Association and others. In addition to end-users, Keefe and Hattori also spoke with importer distributors.

We reached the collective conclusion that bulk shipments will need to be increased in order to rapidly expand imports," Keefe says. "They informed us that the import duties on DDGS are low and are scheduled to be reduced to zero percent later this year in order to reduce cost pressures on the livestock industry in Korea"
