In our factory the boner was talking with someone and he said he is not a butcher; hes's a boner. Can someone tell the difference between them. I searcher in dictionary but could not find it.

    That must be something very specific to your industry. All the meanings I know for "boner" are sexual. Dec 10 '17 at 5:16
  • I have an idea of what you're talking about, but you should provide more details about this person. What does he do? What is his role or his duties?

  • I looked it up in the dictionary, and a boner could be someone who just removes the bones from a dead animal. Best guess is that a "boner" would just take out bones, while a "butcher" would cut something up into the usual types of things people eat (for example, steaks, roasts, and so on). Dec 10 '17 at 5:21
  • @Max, he's a boner in our factory and he cuts beef.

    @joiedevivre Based on my cursory research, your "best guess" is pretty accurate. :)

Googling "meat boner job description" reveals this. Googling "butcher job description" reveals this.

Basically, a boner has the specialized job of removing bones from meat. A butcher has the general responsibility of preparing wholesale meat for retail sale, which may include boning.

  • Nice job. I'm still wondering why someone would say what the OP quoted. Maybe it's along the lines of "I'm a nurse, not a doctor." Dec 10 '17 at 6:32
  • @joiedevivre Yes, exactly. At least that's what I think. After going over the job descriptions, a boner doesn't have any customer-facing responsibilities, while a butcher does, among other things.

Um, I think he's a DE-BONER. A butcher whose specific job it is to remove bones. Boner might be a slang nickname. A butcher is a person who cuts up meat. Part of a bitcher's job is probably to de-bone. "De-boner" would imply that he has a specialized job.

Boner is usually slang for an erection.
