Our Story

Jan Tien and Kelly Tien have acquired and are operating the Norton Livestock Market as of October 1, 2021. Jan, building on his 40 plus years of livestock experience, manages the day-to-day operations of the auction and is primarily responsible for developing relationships with cattle producers and buyers. Jan also supervises the operations of the auction on Thursday sale days. Kelly, along with his wife Jayne, devote their time to ensuring that cattle producers are timely paid for their hard work, handle a variety of administrative matters, and manage relationships with state and federal regulators.


At Norton Livestock Market we want to ensure that the livestock marketing needs of area cattle producers are well provided for. It is our intention to build upon the legacy of our father Clarence Tien, who has operated and owned the livestock auction for over 44 years.


Our plans are to update the livestock market and expand our marketing activities in print and online

media. We intend to maintain this web site at, which will include information relevant to cattle producers; fully implement a new system for managing the sale and settling accounts with sellers and buyers; and offer on-line bidding through Cattle USA. Our plans are to implement these new improvements through Summer 2022, so we invite area cattle producers and cattle buyers to check us out for updates as they happen.
