HISTORY

Image of a red barn Consolidated Grain and Barge has been an innovative and progressive leader in the grain and transportation industries since 1970. Starting off in St. Louis Missouri, CGB has grown to a global enterprise serving a variety of needs for farmers. In 1997, our team of founders met to discuss a new division for CGB. Through conversations with local farmers, they determined the need for more risk management services, and CGB-Diversified Services was created.

Their goal was to provide outstanding and personalized customer service based on the unique farming operations of producers. They developed top-quality crop insurance products and grain marketing expertise by listening to the needs and concerns of customers.

Diversified Services is now the fastest growing crop insurance provider, but we have never lost sight of what is truly important - the farmers we serve.

Two of the most important aspects of farming are managing today’s volatile commodity markets and the risk for yield loss. Understanding how the two vital components of farming impact an operation is what distinguishes DCIS within the insurance industry. As a part of CGB Enterprises, Inc. we have the experience and resources necessary to build a more stable and profitable ag sector.
