KANSAS CITY, MO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Bacon: the superhero of meats. We all love bacon. What it stands for. What it smells like. The sounds it makes as it cooks in our frying pans. It's just that some of us love bacon a little more than others; and for us, there's the Farmland Bacon Club.
Farmland today announced the launch of the Farmland Bacon Club -- a place where bacon lovers can connect, talk, taste, write, post, inspire, design, win, view, vote, like, upload, download, create, influence, and share their passion.
FarmlandBaconClub.com will be home to contests and giveaways, trivia and interactive polls, bacon news (after all, if it's about bacon, it's our duty to report on it), scrumptious bites of bacon wisdom, extreme bacon creations, unique bacon recipes and expert insights into the true potential of Earth's most perfect food. Fans can also follow @FarmlandFoods on Twitter for more up-to-the-minute bacon fun.
Ever thought you'd look better in bacon? Farmland is giving one lucky member the chance to find out through its Bacon or Bust sweepstakes. Fans that sign up for the Club by June 15, 2014 will be eligible to win a life-sized bacon bust and a year's worth of free bacon. Seriously. Your head made out of bacon AND free bacon for a year.
Another bonus of joining the Club: instead of bringing home the bacon, you can have it brought home to you! Members will be able to sign up to purchase Farmland's Bacon of the Month, delivered right to your doorstep (which, as an added bonus, will now smell like delicious bacon).
There will also be freshly entertaining, hunger-inducing video content with TV personality Carrie Keagan and YouTube stars the Brothers Reidell, featuring recipes that will restore your faith in the ingenuity of mankind. (Eating a Bacon Weave Taco? Some would say it's why we were given free will.)
Members receive a Farmland Bacon Club membership card, digital recipe booklet and badge (sadly, these are not edible -- although don't think we didn't consider it), and the chance to win savory prizes, including a month's worth of bacon.

At Farmland, we are passionate about pork. We have been since 1959, when we first started working side-by-side with American farm families to offer the best quality pork cuts. More than 50 years later, our unsurpassed passion and pride are stronger than ever, serving retail and foodservice customers across the United States and in 25 countries on five continents. Our natural, fresh pork products -- bacon, chops, loins, ribs, sausage and ham -- are tender, flavorful and made with the highest quality ingredients. Headquartered in Kansas City, MO, Farmland is a brand of Smithfield-Farmland, a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods. To learn more about Farmland's passion for pork, please visit www.FarmlandFoods.com and www.Facebook.com/FarmlandFoods.
In August 2013, two Smithfield Foods subsidiaries, The Smithfield Packing Company and Farmland Foods, merged to form Smithfield-Farmland. This union brought together two leading pork suppliers, both known for their high-quality retail and foodservice offerings in the United States and abroad across a variety of fresh and packaged categories, with products including smoked meats, hams, bacon, sausage, ribs, loins, chops, hot dogs, bologna, and lunchmeat. In addition to the Smithfield and Farmland brands, the company's Gwaltney and Cook's products are among the leaders in their respective markets.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone.
