A breeder is a person who practices the vocation of mating carefully selected specimens of the same breed to reproduce specific, consistently replicable qualities and characteristics.
This might be as a farmer, agriculturalist, or hobbyist, and can be practiced on a large or small scale, for food, fun, or profit.
Famous quotes containing the word breeder:
“Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?”
