The arable farming industry should not be ruled out as BIG opposition to vegetarianism either.
The meat and dairy industries, by virtue of needing vast amounts or arable crop to process inneficiently via animals, are a very significant part of the arable industries income.
The ultimate beneficiary, and thus the ultimate opposition, is the land owners, mind. They need as much land to be used as possible and for that land to fetch the highest possible prices.
Efficient land use is their greatest enemy.
