The old HFRO name plate
The original HFRO brass name plate
This web site was set up on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the founding, on 1st April 1954, of the Hill Farming Research Organisation, in the hope that it will enable ex-members of staff to keep in touch and share memories
HFRO ceased to exist on 1st April 1987 when it was merged with the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research to create the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute. Many staff remained at Bush then moved to Pentlandfield until Spring 1992 when all remaining staff moved to Aberdeen.
