REGINA — A black cow born in 2006 topped the annual Masterpiece Angus Sale at Canadian Western Agribition yesterday in Regina.

Another high seller came from Heart of the Valley Red Angus owned by Brad and Aleta Chappel of Courtenay, B.C. They sold a red bred heifer for $11,500 to Bryan MacKenzie’s Brylor Angus of Pincher Creek, Alta.
