Since 1948 our cattle have been bred for the Six Essentials as defined by Watt's brother-in-law, Tom Lasater, who founded the Beefmaster breed. We believe Tom Lasater was correct when he selected the Six Essentials: Disposition, Fertility, Weight, Conformation, Hardiness and Milk Production.

The most recent group of yearling calves were scanned October 2, 2012 by Dr. Annie Clement: 2011 bulls IMF averaged 3.50 and REA 8.85 & the 2012 heifers IMF averaged 4.58 & REA 8.41. Our yearlings achieve this, during a drought, on native grasses and forage without being pushed with feed.
Casey Beefmaster cattle are in an environment much like that of area cattle. They basically live off the range with some supplemental feed as required by conditions and need.
Since 1977 the breeding season for all females ages 14 months and older has been 30 days. Those that do not conceive during this breeding season are later exposed to our top herd sires for approximately 45 days and offered for sale when safe in calf. Usually a very high percentage (in the upper 90s) conceive during the combined breeding seasons. The 2012 breeding season despite another drought year resulted in 74% of the yearling heifers bred and 85% of the main cow herd bred.
Casey Beefmasters are gentle and tractable. They are selected for disposition genetically, and trained and handled in a manner to enhance their naturally good dispositions.For more information, you may reach us by e-mail.
