I don't think there is any way to push a package. The package would need to be pulled by each server (yum install pkg). Well, there is an ugly way. You could get the source rpm for some package that is already installed, edit it to bump up its version, and make your package a dependency. The next time the servers checked for and installed updates your package would also be installed.

Well you can push packages on each server individually. You need some kind of more expensive entitlement to push to multiple machines at once.
