With the current rapid growth of world population and prolongation of human life, the raise of the living level and the targeting of food to a growing extent of agro-food products, with high nutritional and biological value, the need for food, especially of animal origin have increased ever more. This research was carried out to investigate and compare the physicochemical and microbiological parameters of milk samples of two different species like cow and sheep, including: pH, fat, protein, total solids, density, and somatic cells. Results showed that maximum fat and protein content were observed at sample 3 and sample 4, indicate that in mountain area sheep’s are the most favorable animal breeding. The milk samples were collected nine month in the year 2011 from different farmers. The statistical analysis showed that the physicochemical and microbiological parameters of these milk samples were significantly different (p<0.05).
