Judy Morrison - Risk Management Specialist

Judy Morrison graduated from Illinois College in Jacksonville with a Business Degree and was hired by Consolidated Grain and Barge soon after. She started in the accounting department and was later trained as a Grain Merchandiser. She originated grain for the next 20 years from local producers and grain elevators, traded rail grain from Iowa and Missouri and barge grain to the Gulf.

When Diversified Services first began she served as a liaison between CGB grain customer and the many resources DS had to offer. In June of 2002 she officially joined the Diversified Services group and moved to the Jacksonville DS office.

For many years Judy worked with producers to help them market their grain but there was always that possibility that the market would move against them or that they wouldn't produce a crop. After learning the importance crop insurance could have on a producer's marketing plan she realized this was how they could protect those adversities. In 2004 she acquired her Crop Insurance license and is now devoting her time to learning and teaching as much as she can about this ever changing industry.

She resides in rural Jacksonville with her husband Rich, who is also a CI agent of Diversified Services, and their four very active teenagers.
