* Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Literature/TheRatsInTheWalls'' has this as the horrible secret of the degenerate de La Peur family. Beneath their ancestral mansion Exam Priory lies an ancient underground city which has been used as a breeding pen for centuries, if not ''millenia'', predating Roman times, where countless generations of humans have been raised as cattle to feed the cannibal appetites of the family. The breeding stock was so inbred and twisted towards the end that some of them had devolved into quadrupeds. This practice was finally ended when the main character's great-grandfather massacred his evil family and fled to America. Unfortunatly, the main character is not aware of the true nature of his ancestors, as a letter explaining the secret that had traditionally been passed from father to son had been destroyed in the American Civil War, along with the only living relative who knew the truth.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'';
** The xill are evil humanoids from the Ethereal Plane who are notorious for [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong implanting their eggs in humanoid beings]] to spawn their young. However, the more civilized High Clan xill cannot do this as a combat ability, and claim it is only done by the barbaric Lower Clan xill. Still, there are quite a few in-universe {{Urban Legend}}s about High Clan xill having nightmarish strongholds where mortal races are raised from birth for just this purpose.
** The slaadi of Limbo - who have a similar reproduction method - do indeed have a variety of that, although they're more like prison camps where they put captured victims.

* At the end of ''Film/SoylentGreen'', the harried protagonist is reduced to running through the streets, yelling about how the world's leaders are going to reduce the planet's population to livestock and [[spoiler: breed them for food]]. Given how overcrowded, downtrodden, ignorant, and apathetic the film's citizenry seems to be, the viewer is presumably meant to conclude it's already happened.

** During the War of the Beast, the Fist Exemplar and the Iron Warriors stumbled across some that the Orks had set up, the aliens drugging and fattening up thousands of human slaves for food. Even the Iron Warriors, stone cold siege specialists who consider planetary genocide and WeHaveReserves to be perfectly sound tactics, [[EvenEvilHasStandards are disgusted by the sight.]]

* The TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness's UK has the Blood Farm, run by a mortal businessman with absolutely no morals and extensive knowledge of the country's vampire communities. He keeps his operation stocked with asylum seekers, who are brought in, kept in horrendous conditions, and slowly bled dry. It's implied that elder vampires use the Farm as a lesson to neonates. If they're queasy about having to attack people for blood, they'll be set up with packages from the Blood Farm for a few months... and then the elders spare no detail in telling them where it comes from.

** The Esoteric Order of Dagon is also mentioned to have Breeding Camps on the shorelines of their conquered territory, though in this case recreation takes a backseat to procreation (duh) as it's more a way to replenish their ranks faster to compensate for [[ImmortalProcreationClause full Deep Ones' extremely slow reproductive cycle]].

* ''TabletopGame/RuneQuest'' has the Very, Very Weird example of the Praxian Morokanth tribe, nomadic humanoid tapirs who herd humans to use as pack beasts and food. Thing is, it's not the vile act this would normally be - in ages past, the human Praxian tribes and their totem animals were presumably both sapient, until for some reason the chief Praxian god decided to hold a series of lotteries between each human tribe and their respective totem animals to determine who would be the eater (sapient herders responsible for the well-being of their herds) and eaten (able to forage for sustenance in the Praxian wastes, but stripped of sapience); humans won 4 out of the 5 lotteries, but the tribe with the Morokanth as a totem wasn't as lucky as the others. They're also capable of turning captive "normal" humans into nonsapient herd-humans too, but don't expect a last-minute rescue by TheCavalry if they try to do this to you - the Morokanth are Praxians, and the surrounding human Praxian tribes feel a stronger cultural kinship towards them than a species one towards any poor schlubs who got themselves in that particular pickle.

* ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' has bastard farms, where humans without a functioning brain are grown to serve various needs: to be sold as food to [[ImAHumanitarian Long Pig,]] to be brain-dead sex slaves, and to be a [[spoiler: [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking candidate for Vice President]]]].

* In ''TableTopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'', Vladimir Ludzig is a vampyre (a predatory species that once had the same ecological purpose as wolves, except they preyed on humans) from an alternate world where his kind conquered humanity, and uses this system to feed themselves. Having been transported to the Demiplane of Dread via the mists, his rather ambitious goal is to do the same there.
