ELSIE Darily products corp buys one input, full cream milk and refine Joint-cost allocation. Elsie Dairy Products Corp. buys one
input, full-cream milk, and refines it in a churning process.
From each gallon of milk Elsie produces three cups of
butter and nine cups of buttermilk. During May 2010, Elsie
bought 12,000 gallons of milk for $22,250. Elsie spent another$9,430 on the churning process to separate the
milk into butter and buttermilk. Butter could be sold
immediately for $2.20 per pound and buttermilk could be sold immediately for$1.20 per quart (note: two cups = one
pound; four cups = one quart).

Elsie chooses to process the butter further into spreadable
butter by mixing it with canola oil, incurring an additional
cost of $1.60 per pound. This process results in two tubs of spreadable butter for each pound of butter processed. Each tub of spreadable butter sells for$2.30.
