buy from farmers and $14 to crush in the company's plant. Two intermediate products, beet fiber and beet juice, emerge from the crushing process. The beet fiber can be sold as is for $20 or processed further for $18 to make the end product industrial fiber that is sold for $45. The beet juice can be sold as is for $41 or processed further for $21 to make the end product refined sugar that is sold for $62.

Chapter 12 - Differential Analysis: The Key to Decision Making55. Beilke Corporation processes sugar beets in batches that it purchases from farmers for $53 a batch. A batch of sugar beets costs $12 to crush in the company's plant. Two intermediate products, beet fiber and beet juice, emerge from the crushing process. The beet fiber can be sold as is for $20 or processed further for $10 to make the end product industrial fiber that is sold for $26. The beet juice can be sold as is for $30 or processed further for $29 to make the end product refined sugar that is sold for $79. Which of the intermediate products should be processed further? A. beet fiber should be processed into industrial fiber; beet juice should be processed into refined sugarB.beet fiber should NOT be processed into industrial fiber; beet juice should be processed into refined sugarC. beet fiber should NOT be processed into industrial fiber; beet juice should NOT be processed into refined sugarD. beet fiber should be processed into industrial fiber; beet juice should NOT be processed into refined sugarBeet fiber should not be processed into industrial fiber—it should be sold as is at the split-off point. Beet juice should be processed into refined sugar.AACSB: AnalyticAICPA BB: Critical ThinkingAICPA FN: MeasurementBloom's: ApplicationLearning Objective: 12-07 Prepare an analysis showing whether joint products should be sold at the split-off point or processed furtherLevel: Easy12-1

The company buys a batch of sugar cane from farmers for $70 which is then crushed in the company's plant at a cost of $19. Two intermediate products, cane fiber and cane juice, emerge from the crushing process. The cane fiber can be sold as is for $21 or processed further for $13 to make the end product industrial fiber that is sold for $42. The cane juice can be sold as is for $44 or processed further for $26 to make the end product molasses that is sold for $88. How much profit (loss) does the company make by processing one batch of sugar cane into the end products industrial fiber and molasses?
