Composite: A uniform group of cattle created by selectively crossing two or more breeds for several generations and establishing a certain fixed percentage of each breed (such as the Santa Gertrudis that carries 5/8 Shorthorn genetics and 3/8 Brahmon, or the Brangus that carries 8/8 Angus genetics and 3/8 Brahman, or the Beefmaster that carries approximately 1/2 Brahman genetics and the other half a blend of Hereford and Shorthorn in roughly equal percentage), In essence a composite is a new "breed" designed to retain a certain amount of heterosis in future generations without crossbreeding, and can thus be maintained as a "pure" breed without further infusions of other breeds.
