Give the same item pickup thing that the villagers have into mobs, you would unlock the item pick up by giving them some food until they like you, just like we do with horses to tame them. once unlocked if you toss the food they are currently given to breed on the ground, they pick it up and will breed on their own until the food is gone. This would allow population control, item management so you could get the amount of animals you needed while you are doing other tasks, the breeding cool down would stay the same. after all, animals don't really "need" a person around to help them make babies
Basically give the same breeding program villagers have to animals, but they would have to be "tamed" so the option to breed is unlocked. - simple?
Not a bad idea, spending a little more initially to make so you don't have to manually feed them to get them to breed. That said, I don't find breeding them to be that big of an inconvenience, all you basically need to do is go in their pen and hold right click with the food item.
