My main goal is to get rid of mass husbandry and the environmental impact of industrial meat production.

My question is: Is it better to abandon meat from my diet completely or to endorse eco-riendly meat production.

As a vegetarian you do not support any meat production and so reduce the overall amount of meat produced. But you also do not insensitive the companies behind meat production to change their behavior.

As "Eco-meat-eater" you do vote with your wallet and maybe convince your grocery store to add more environmentally friendly meat to its assortment. This would change the ration between industrial and "organic" meat.

Which of those solution is better to reduce the global impact of meat production in the long term. Or is there an entirely different solution?

    $\begingroup$ What sort of meat production would you consider eco-friendly? Raising livestock on grassland with little use of fertiliser and pesticides limits some kinds of environmental impact, but may (by requiring more land to achieve the same output) increase others such as deforestation. $\endgroup$ – Adam Bailey Aug 10 '19 at 22:15
