This study was evaluated the effects of Asses, camels and cow's milk on pathogenic bacteria and fungus. Fifty-two isolates representative Gram negative, positive pathogenic bacteria and fungus belong to the genera (Pseudomonas, Escherichia, Klebsiella, Proteus, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Candida albicans). Samples were collected during period 1st 2016 to 30th 2017.  The inhibition zoon test was used as indicator to determine the antimicrobial activity of milk as cultivated by agar diffusion method. The results shows that all milk types used in this conduct test were capable of inhibited the microbial strain bring up above. Ass milk shows superior activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candia albicans with LSD values of 6.091*, 6.448 *and 5.609* respectively. Camel milk active against E.coli, Klebsiela spp, and Candida 1 with LSD values of 6.448*, 6.205* and 7.413* respectively . Cow milk shows lowest effects with LSD value of 5.709 against Candida albicans .This study conclude the that Ass milk and camel represents the most effective types of milk against the gram positive and negative pathogenic bacteria and fungus isolates.
