You might consider contacting the national breed associations for Brangus, Murray Grey, or Santa Gertrudis to discuss their experiences -- each of those are now recognized "breeds" that are essentially the result of crossbreeding two "original" breeds of cattle.

From a publication on crossbreeding:

Bill Lamberson, John Massey and Jack C. Whittier Department of Animal Sciences, University of Missouri-Columbia

Composites are a stable intermating population originating from crossbred matings. Santa Gertrudis and Brangus are examples, as are the MARC composites developed at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center. Composites usually incorporate a combination of breeds, each of which contributes a characteristic desirable for good performance or environmental adaptation.
