Casey Beefmasters is owned and operated by Watt Matthews Casey,
D.V.M., his wife, Dosia, and their four children. When Watt
graduated from Texas A&M with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine
degree in 1943, he was already in the army. Watt spent 3 1/2
years in the army, much of it as a paratrooper in the 11th
Airborne Division before returning to civilian life. He
practiced veterinary medicine and worked as a cowboy until the
fall of 1947 when he added cattle ranching to his endeavors.
During the fall of 1948 Watt began using Lasater Beefmasters bulls
and soon acquired Lasater Beefmaster females. Since then
Beefmasters have been the breed of choice. They have performed
well for the Caseys in three very different areas:
