I don't know this heifer's bottom side, but we've used Built Right on the Dream On free Upgrades and have had excellent success.  Had a $8000 Built Right bull out of an Upgrade heifer last year, and she has a killer baldy heifer this year by the same bull. 

My only concern here would be that you could get too much white...

What is the bottom side of this heifer?

So I'm going back to my original post / comment after reading what owner wants. You want simmy and calving ease -Grandmaster.   I also agree strongly with Frostback.  We bred four sim/ang heifers that the kids showed last year all to Grandmaster.  All four calves were heifers, with BW of 64-69 pounds.  Easiest calving I have ever had in my life and calves were up and bucking before mom had bags completely licked off of them.  The calves are phenominal.  Not leathery up front at all.  They do come out long and leggy but after a couple weeks, they grow like weeds. Either I got lucky or the others who post negative about Grandmaster calves had bad luck. So I guess 6 one way, half a dozen another.  I know there are several on this site with Grandmaster females not only making exceptional outcrosses to the overwhelming amount of Dream On influences, but also winning. 
My Grandmaster heifers will be bred to Uno Mas (because I've seen and touched a couple this summer and they are awesome). And he is calving ease.

With Meyer in there already, unless you are willing to risk extra white, I'd probably pull my mating choice of Built Right off the table.  Could be lots of chrome there.  I've seen some really nice BR's out of Meyer cows though....

Thanks for all the ideas guys. The other thing I was considering was flushing her prior to breeding her when the time comes. I have flushed cows but never a heifer. Thoughts? Ill add that she is a growthy heifer, extra sound and deep. She could use a cleaner neck but she's not to bad.
