The spread of antibiotic resistance microorganisms is currently one of the most important safety issues including raw milk and milk products. Contamination of microbes occurs during milking, shortly after milking until the milk is consumed. Contamination could come from the environment, workers, equipment, cages, animals, feed and water. To reduce the risk of microbial contamination application of Sanitation Standard Operating Procedure (SSOP) during milking process is absolutely necessary. The aims of this study were to determine antimicrobial resistance of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Salmonella isolated from raw milk and the implementation of SSOP during milking process. The results showed that with the average level of SSOP implementation in milking process of 61.85% or 20 SSOP, the antimicrobial resistance qualitative examination were found that the milk samples consisted of E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella. The antibiotic resistance profiles were tested to 3 antibiotics. It showed that 44.44% E. coli, 22.22% Staphylococcus aureus, and 11.11% Salmonella were resistance to chloramphenicol, where as all bacteria (100%) were resistance to trimethoprim and 11.11% E. coli were resistance to ampicillin.
