Deep Valley Foods manufactures a product that is first smoked and then packed for shipment to customers. During a normal month the product’s direct labor cost per pound is budgeted using the following information:

The budget for March calls for the production of 500,000 pounds of product. However, March’s direct labor costs for smoking are expected to be 5 percent above normal due to anticipated scheduling inefficiencies.
