Stud Master

A Stud Master is an individual responsible for an employer's breeding stock, the term is usually used of dogs or horses. It is usually applied regardless of gender; the term 'Stud Mistress' is rarely seen.

The Stud Master typically suggests desired matings to the owner, and arranges for the same, whether in-house or by contract with animals standing at stud, approves and arranges matings to the owner's animals at stud requested by outsiders, and keeps all records, including notifying the appropriate animal registries.

In a large or formal household the Stud Master may be a permanent position; in this case the Stud Master is often responsible for the maintenance of the stables and/or kennels as well, but usually it is a part time or contractual arrangement.
