Perhaps the impact on changing the Suffering Attitude could be important here. It's not clear yet to me how enduring this attitude change is, especially extended into the far future, but you probably could put some sort of value on it? I'd be interested in further testing on this.

The speciesism scale that was recently published by an EA psychologist might be useful for this purpose.

Ha, cool, you were also involved in the Sentience Institute study about attitudes towards US farm animals that probably also contains useful methodology in this direction.
