A fire over the weekend killed more than 100 cows at a Canadian dairy farm.

"At this point we're all still pretty much in shock," farmer Welden Plett told CBC News. "We have no idea what direction to turn to at this point, but we've had other curveballs thrown at us, you keep going. So who knows, it's too early to tell what we're going to do," he said.

Plett was not at home when the fire broke out Saturday morning, but his brother reportedly contacted him after spotting the flames.

In total, 103 cows were killed; 60 others were able to be saved.

The farm is located near Giroux, Manitoba, Canada.
