Not bad, right? Only until you compare this to the effect we would get from country-wide participation in Meatless Mondays. There are about 52 weeks in a year, but let's say we can count on 50 Mondays without meat (we wouldn't want to limit you to soy dogs during your Memorial and Labor Day barbecues). Doing the same arithmetic, this would save 6.1 million cows instead of 3.8 million. To put it another way, 50 days is 61 percent more days than 31, so no matter how many cows or pounds of beef you avoid consuming during #NoRedOctober, you'll save 61 percent more animals or meat by opting for Meatless Mondays instead.
