Performance efficiency of human labor input is considered one of the most important factors affecting enhancement the production, there are some criteria that may be used to exploring performance efficiency of the worker. The research problem, can be summarized in the deviation the actual performance efficiency of human labor input from the desired level, so the objective of the study is to investigate the performance efficiency of human labor input in the animal production sector, as represented by a case study of one of the firms, namely, the International Corporation for AnimalWealth. To achieve these objectives, the study applied limited dummy dependent variables models. The study obtained data from cross section data according to the survey of the study, where stratified sample was chosen, and consisted of four groups of labor in the fields: livestock, milking, poultry, and milk processing. The study estimated the important variables affecting the performance efficiency of laborers subjected to the survey, the results indicate that the most variables explaining the performance efficiency are, wage, education, and experience. Some recommendations, for rising agricultural employment, and increasing the efficiency of human labor input, i.e., expanding the cultivation of crops that have intensity of labor, adoption of technology that encourages labor intensity. expanding the agricultural projects, i.e., small rural industries, poultry growing. Also reclamation and cultivation of new lands. improving education and training in the agricultural sector, and increasing wages that reflect labor productivity to achieve the efficiency of human labor input in the Egyptian agricultural sector.
