we try to go 12 hours after standing heat. when Cowboy gets on he can elaborate more.

Heat/temp does affect them I think. when they're really hot it seems to diminish the amount of riding. I think you have more standing heats at night too.

Not sooner than 12hrs.

If the menial temp. is above the cows normal body temp., it diminishes the conception rate considerably. ie; wait till it cools down a little in the 12-18 hr window.

They really push the 12 hour after standing heat in all of my classes. 
I like Cows.  That is all.
