Expert Answer:

Milk production can be increased in various ways:
i) Increasing the lactation period
ii) Developing new and better varieties of cattle using selective breeding such as cross-breeding between the indigenous breeds and exotic breeds.
iii) Hormone treatments are given to dairy cows in some countries to increase reproduction and to increase milk production. Use of bovine somatotropin hormone increases milk production.
