Hieefer won't stand

We have a hiefer in with a bull now for 24 days. He finally has shown interest in her. However she won't stand. Is this common for hiefers?

Hi Rob, If the bull was not showing interest but now is, that is a good sign that the heifer may be in heat soon. I've noticed the bull starts hanging around maybe the day before. If the bull is already attempting to mount, the heifer is coming into heat, but not yet "standing heat". She will probably be standing tonight. Let us know
