The circle of life - it stops for nobody.
And so it proved when Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and several Chinese ministers visited a Mayo farm along with Enda Kenny yesterday.
The visit came as Ireland and China signed a diplomatic visa waiver agreement and agreed on greater agricultural co-operation between both countries and hopes that a ban on Irish beef will be lifted.

Discussing it on 'Morning Ireland' on RTE Radio One this morning, agriculture and farming correspondent George Lee said the visit was a great success for the Irish government, portraying the beautiful farming landscape of Ireland.
Along with a couple of frisky cows.
"I noticed that when the Chinese media was interviewing the Minister for Agriculture [Simon Coveney], I'm not sure the cameraman would have got this, but there were a couple frisky cows in the background," George told the programme to peals of laughter from the two hosts.
"Well it would be good and viral on our internet here but I'm sure the Chinese cameraman wasn't so canny about that," George added.
