Three hundred raw sheep & goat milk samples from dairy farms located around Giza, Egypt had total bacterial count of 4.8-5.1 x103 CFU/ml consisting of Staphylococcus ~40, E. coli ~23, Pseudomonas and Micrococcous ~13 and Klebsiella spp ~10%. Highest resistance occurred in S. aureus to chloramphenicol 100, Erythromycin ~60 and clindamycin ~50%, Resistance by Escherichia coli to ofloxacin was ~85 and chloramphenicol, erythromycin and oxacillin ~60%. Resistance patterns of S. aureus from hand swabs of dairy workers was similar to raw milk samples.
