About Us
About Our Business

Dalton Auction Service was founded in 1999 by our senior
auctioneer, Jay Dalton.  He became interested in the auction
business growing up on his family's ranch in Clover Valley, Nevada,
where he attended many bull sales, farm sales, and county fairs with
his family.  After picking up the beginnings of his "chant" from these
events and perfecting it somewhat during various functions at his
high school, Jay was asked to assist in calling bids at the 1998 Elko
County Fair 4-H Livestock Auction.  Following the sale, those involved
with the 4-H program at the time decided to raise a sort of
"scholarship" for their budding young auctioneer.  In the spring of
1999, Jay graduated from
Western College of Auctioneering in
Billings, Montana and was named "Outstanding Student" in his
class.  Upon returning home to the ranch, Jay created Dalton Auction
Service in order to provide auction related services to northeastern

Currently, Dalton Auction Service still operates from Jay's home in
Clover Valley, Nevada.  We provide free consultations, advertising,
bid calling, clerk and cashier services, and full support to our clients
during all phases of the auction process.  We handle all types of
merchandise including livestock, equipment and vehicles, benefits
and fundraisers, miscellaneous merchandise, and other items.
