Cuba Imports First Shipment of DDGS Since December 2005
USAgNet – 02/19/2007

Cuba is importing its first shipment of U.S. distiller's dried grains
with solubles (DDGS) since December of 2005. A shipment of 8,000 metric
tons was purchased by ALIMPORT, Cuba's sole trade entity.

"The United States requires all purchases by Cuba be paid for in advance
of shipment," said Chris Corry, USGC senior director of international
operations.

"The Council is pleased to see a U.S. grain co-product making its way
into this market."

With its proximity to the U.S. ports on the Gulf and expanding tourism
industry, Cuba has the potential to become a significant consumer of
U.S. grains.

USGC officers visited the island nation in January 2006 to foster
relationships with ALIMPORT and identify areas where technical support
is needed, such as in formulating livestock rations and using DDGS.
