Help us save Victoria Farm





 In the corporate world, Dr. Thomas Bassett Macaulay (1860-1942), is known as the man who made the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada into one of the world's pre-eminent insurance firms.  For dairy farmers, his legacy is that of making Holstein into a successful dairy breed.  For agriculturalists, TB was the creator of Aberdeen, Scotland's Macaulay Institute for Soil Research.  Today, some 76 years later, the Macaulay Institute is the premier land use research institute in the UK, with some 270 staff working on today's land use challenges.  Last month, the institute paid homage to his memory by welcoming his sons Doug and Tom as honoured guests.
