Our history

DA Hall & Co was founded in 1958 by visionary entrepreneur Doug Hall, who ventured into commercial egg production and laid the foundation for one of Australia’s largest poultry operations.

Over the years, the company has grown to encompass intensive pig production, egg production, stockfeed milling, and cereal crop production, becoming a leading force in the industry.

Our founder, Doug Alexander Hall, was born in Suva, Fiji to British parents and brought to Australia as an infant. After serving as a navigator in the Air Force during World War II, Doug returned to Australia to join his mother Hally on her property in Queensland’s Darling Downs. There, he met and married Barbara Beaumonth and, together, they raised three children and developed a keen interest in poultry. Doug’s passion and hard work laid the foundation for the company’s continued growth, which was later expanded upon by his son Simon, who joined the business in 1979 and worked alongside Doug for nearly three decades.

Today, DA Hall & Co stands as a testament to the vision and legacy of its founder and the dedication of its employees.
