Speculation is growing over U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack's promise  to help struggling dairy farmers.

Monday, on a "Rural Tour" in Vermont, Vilsack made references to helping farmers with loan payments and setting up a commission to review the federal milk-pricing system.

An article in the Rutland (Vt.) Herald sheds more light on this.
