Farm up for auction

Gene Sauer and Rebecca Sauer stand in front of their farm before an auction August 27, 2009 in Cambria Wisconsin. Farm owners Gene Sauer and Rebecca Sauer are forced to sell off their lot of equipment and cattle to pay the bills and stay out of debt. The Sauer farm is another small farm operation that has been hit by the recession. Gene drives a semi truck and Rebecca recently lost her job after 7 years. (Photo by Darren Hauck/Getty Images)
