Through a bibliographical research the main methods of attribution of joint costs were verified, and from a case study it is tried to demonstrate the application of these methods in the rabbit breeding. It was verified that the several existent methods are based in tracking of the general production costs before the partition point. It is possible to infer that all of the methods of joint costs attribution can be applied to the rabbit breeding activity, displaying advantages and disadvantages, falling to the manager to decide the best one to be used in his operation. Due to the characteristics of the rabbit breeding, it is considered that the method of the technical indexes is it which would better adapt to this activity.
