Dear Insert your Pseudonym,
In reference to question #19919, the church does own some cattle ranches. I am not sure of how many, but I do know of a really big one. In fact, this particular ranch is considered to be the largest in the nation. It is found in Florida, just south of Orlando, near St. Cloud. The church owns and runs it - a very impressive site.
I don't believe, however, that BYU receives its meat from that particular ranch. If I understood correctly, this particular ranch is used for welfare reasons, and for being used in the Bishop's Storehouse.
Hopefully you will enjoy that little tidbit of information.
