The Gows Company processes unprocessed goat milk up to the splitoff point where two products, condensed goat milk and skim goat milk result. The following information was collected for the month of October:

Direct Materials processed: 130,000 gallons (shrinkage was 10%)

Production: condensed goat milk 52,200 gallons

skim goat milk 64,800 gallons

Sales: condensed goat milk .50 per gallon

skim goat milk $2.50 per gallon

The costs of purchasing the 130,000 gallons of unprocessed goat milk and processing it up to the splitoff point to yield a total of 117,000 gallons of salable product was $144,480. There were no inventory balances of either product.

Skim goat milk can be processed further to yield 56,200 gallons of skim goat ice cream, for an additional processing cost per usable gallon of $2.50. The product can be sold for $9 per gallon.
