That's hardly the case since the protein would need to be replaced, which would mean even more farm land would be needed to replace all that protein and all those calories.

Maybe you're stronger than ever because you workout six days a week.
Working out tends to...work out that way.
But in reality, you're only citing overall proteins--there is plenty that one gets naturally from meat that plant-based sources don't provide and therefore must be ingested via supplements.
Going extreme in either direction is not a good idea, because too much meat can have nasty side effects just like none at all (unless you supplement, of course). And even then, it depends on the individual's body, not some generalized idea of what should or should not be.
It's great that a vegan diet works well for you--that isn't always the case for everyone.
