In January 1974, Oklahoma Farm Bureau began offering reward signs for a new property protection service to help deter theft, vandalism and arson, and aid in the identification of stolen property. Each member was given one 9-by-11-inch aluminum sign for mounting on fences and gates, which offered a $500 cash reward for information leading to arrest and conviction of thieves, arsonists or vandals. The one sign per member-family was free at participating county Farm Bureaus. Additional signs could be purchased for $3. Smaller paper adhesive signs and decals suitable for display in home windows, car and truck windows and on implements carried the same message. In addition, electric engraving tools were sold in participating county Farm Bureau offices. Oklahoma Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company purchased one engraving tool for each participating county Farm Bureau to be loaned without charge to members.
