Mark Cascio

Area manager - Hound Division

I proudly served in the US Army and was stationed in Ft. Jackson, SC.  After active duty I returned home and enrolled in college.  I earned a BS degree in Animal Science from the University of Louisiana at Monroe.  Upon graduation I relocated with my wife to Lafayette, Louisiana.   In 2004 I began my carrier with Purina working as a Veterinary Sales Consultant.  In 2016 I was giving an incredible opportunity to join the Breeder Enthusiast Group as an area manager for the Beagle division.  In 2018 I accepted the responsibility as area manager of the hound division which includes working with houndsmen from both the coonhound and beagle worlds.  In 2019, one of my beagles won the Deep South Gundog Federation high point hound of the year and continued on to became an AKC field champion.  When I am not working I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife Jennifer, and daughters, Emma (16), and Julia (13).
