Golden Eagle Hay

Isaiah 40:31

but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

The Story

The original owner R. W. Dockstader started exporting alfalfa pellets to Japan in 1963. Then many years later in 1980 he exported baled alfalfa. R.W. Dockstader is a pioneer in the hay export market. Through R.W. Dockstader's hard work and personal sacrifices he opened the door to many other export companies that exist today.

About 1987 R.W. Dockstader's two out of three sons moved to Imperial Valley from Washington to lend their father a hand in the hay business. After working many years starting from the bottom working his way to the top for his father; Pat Dockstader purchased Golden Eagle Hay from his father. The other brother Dwayne Dockstader purchased hay hauling equipment to provide services to Golden Eagle Hay. Between the two brothers businesses they have single handily made the small town of Calipatria the "Hay Mecca" it is today.

The Future

Golden Eagle has had the opportunity to diversify and gain market strength through upward integration. Most of our supplies are purchased on the open market. However to further support the hay business, Golden Eagle Hay has started farming to grow our own supply of feed. This has helped us secure a supply of premium quality hay for extremely important customers. The farming subsidiary of our company is P&T Enterprises. P&T Enterprises farms almost *4000 acres of sudan, Bermuda and alfalfa hay. We have also started growing organic citrus and dates. (*Acreage varies depending on crop rotation).
