    [eng] The overlapping of domestic and professional work, in women's farmlabor, and its resulting temporal complexity, is an important issue for economists studying employment in agricultural production. Ergonomics, which aims to analyse an operator's activity in order to improve it, shows an operative coherence between household tasks and farmwork. The lack of social identity in female farmwork hides a specific productive capacity, especially in animal rearing, made possible by the domestic work's characteristics. [fre] L'imbrication des sphères professionnelles et domestiques dans le travail des femmes des exploitations agricoles familiales, et la complexité temporelle qui en résulte, posent problème pour aborder la question de l'emploi en agriculture. L'approche ergonomique, dont l'objet est l'étude spécifique de l'activité des travailleurs en vue de l'améliorer, met en évidence une cohérence entre ces deux sphères. La non-reconnaissance sociale du travail des femmes occulte une productivité spécifique, particulièrement dans le domaine de l'élevage. Cet apport est le fruit des potentialités opératoires du travail dans la sphère domestique.
