About 11 months ago DDGS was hovering around $160 / ton.
The closest it's been to $50 / ton in recent years was May / June '05 when it bottomed out a few times at around $75 / ton.
If last year you purchased DDGS at $50 / ton ($1.25 / 50# sack), you probably got a deal on product deemed spoiled, or otherwise unsuitable as a livestock feed.
