Most preppers that I’ve come across are normal red-blooded Americans. What I mean by that, in this case, is that they like red meat in their diet (though they like their chicken and venison, too).
But have you considered that there may be benefits to not being animal-dependent if you’re in a survival situation?
Aside from the many health benefits that many attribute to a vegetarian diet (whether all vegetarian or one of varieties that allow fish or eggs and dairy), some long-term survival benefits may exist such as not having to learn additional skills of animal husbandry and animal care to continue the use of animals and their products. Especially for newer preppers, one less skill to learn means a shorter learning curve to get to a point where you can survive long-term.
Additionally, there is a certain ease in the lack of need to dedicate land specifically to animals and putting that land to other useful purposes, potentially reducing the land area needed to take care of you and your family.
Listen to these and a few other ideas in under a half-hour below (the prepper information starts at around the 6:00 mark). The source page is here.
