CAMBRIA, WI - AUGUST 27: Ariel Phillips, 14, and niece of Rebecca Sauer, looks on as prospective buyers inspect the cattle at the Sauer's 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.
