“The 28 hr Law of 1906 outlawed any feeding or watering while in transit, making the apparatuses useless.”

From Section 3 of “The 28 Hour Law” in reference to unloading, feeding and rest within Sections 1 and 2:

“...Provided, That when animals are carried in cars, boats or other vessels in which they can and do have proper food, water, space and opportunity to rest the provisions in regard to their being unloaded shall not apply.”

There is no provision within the Act specifically “outlawing” feeding and watering stock while in transit.
