You might want to go to <A HREF="http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/">www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/</A> for more info on cattle breeds. It seems the shorthorn breed is popular in a lot of the composite breeds, being used as a part in many of the crosses. Santa Gertrudis comes to mind. Most of the composite breeds are relatively 'young' compared to the purebred or full blood cattle breeds of today because they were developed from these purebred cattle.
