Is nudging the only way to get an animal into my breeding pens, or can I use another, more reliable method?

I believe the question has been asked before, but just hold wheat in your hands and they will follow you – Domocus Nov 30 '11 at 20:05

Good grief, nudging them would take forever. :)

You might also be interested in this thread about separating them into pens. Better read it beforehand. ;)

Is this a recent feature? Freaking awesome, I did not know this. – Cory J Dec 1 '11 at 2:12
It was added at the same time as breeding. – Kevin Reid Dec 1 '11 at 3:16
And that means it was only added in the latest update, 1.0.0. :) – ver Dec 1 '11 at 6:21
