During March 2013, the first month of operations, Oink Oink’s Pork Co. had the operating statistics shown in the following table.

Costs of the joint process were direct material, $ 40,000; direct labor, $ 23,400; and overhead, $ 10,000. The company’s main products are pork tenderloin, roast pork, and ham; pork hooves are a by-product of the process. The company recognizes the net realizable value of by-product inventory at split-off by reducing total joint cost. Neither the main products nor the by-product requires any additional processing or disposal costs, although management could consider additional processing.
