Richard Breunig founded Priority Int’l Animal Concepts (Priority IAC), Inc. in 1998. To date, Priority IAC, Inc. is the only company bringing the fields of microbiology and novel nutrition together for animal health; as well as, providing a more cost effective and easier approach to nutrition. Priority IAC is a farm-developed concept, family-owned company bringing this technology directly to producers, rather than a corporate top down model. the P-One Program™ is truly a grassroots movement to empower the producer. Breunig’s hands-on, practical experience in production agriculture, along with microbiology and nutritional expertise make Priority IAC unique.
Priority IAC maintains a research and product development mentality that starts on the dairy. Priority IAC provides education on how each branded strain of Smart bacteria works, how the most fermentable, home-grown forages can be used, and how producers can monitor their cow performance to know what adjustments to make. the P-One Program is a new concept. It’s different; it’s less costly, more efficient, and a much more effective way to feed cows. Priority IAC technology makes it the 1st ingredient, For Healthy Cows.

A self-taught entrepreneur, Breunig’s broad experience gives him the expertise to work with small, specialty herds and large herds alike.

He bred more than 100 Excellent scored cows and was recognized as one of the best type herds in the nation. D-R-A August EX-96 4E called Clover Mist Farms home and is the Patron of Priority IAC.

During the 1980’s and 1990’s, I was managing one of the nation’s best-known dairies. Several of our production records exceeded 40,000 pounds of milk, along with nine records over 2,000-pounds of fat. These are impressive, even by today’s standards.
Good times came to a screeching and devastating halt when a manufacturer’s error in mixing minerals into the feed resulted in numerous animal losses. This led to the development of Priority IAC, the Smartbacteria and Nutrition Company.
