There will never be enough vegans for the amount of cows bred to be reduced, so although it might make you feel better, the fact of the matter is no less cows are being slaughtered because you won't wear leather shoes or eat beef.
And for that reason, I'm off to the steak house.
Why the neg rep? You know I'm right!

Eh, OP do some research.
Humans have domesticated many animals...Including those that would kill for meat. Nevertheless, cows would still be used by food if they were in the wild, probably we'd be sharing and killing more animals indirectly . At least we can control and regulate rather than relying on the natural order of the ecosystems to maintain a stable population.
I mean, we could just kill them off like the dodos in either case.
Interesting to see that you consider less of your fellow man. Human trials are already dangerous enough. Even so, it would greatly hinder medication development for animals as well.
vitamin tablets don't have good rep. More often than not, people use vitamin tablets as an excuse for an unhealthy diet.
If we're talking about red meat then maybe yes, beyond on what you'll need, fish is meat and contributes to a healthy diet in many cultures. Still, meat is the only way in which you gain large amounts of energy in small portions of food.
I would rather be well nourished without having to eat ample amount of food.
