An error was found in the article “Prevalence and impacts of genetically engineered feedstuffs on livestock populations” (J. Anim. Sci. 2014 92:4255–4278). In the section Field Datasets of Livestock Populations Fed with Genetically Engineered Feed, page 4262, feed conversion values were inadvertantly switched in the text (the values read correctly in both Fig. 2 and Table 4). Bolding below shows the correct wording. The authors apologize for the error:

The conversion of feed to gain continuously decreased from 2 in 1985 to 1.91 in 2011, attributable most likely to improved genetics (Havenstein et al., 2003) and management, but this ratio is something that would be expected to worsen (i.e., increase) if the health of these animals was deteriorating following exposure to GE feed.
