Unless you have access to a fully equipped testing laboratory, you're not going to be able to do the necessary testing even if you had the skills to do so. I believe you are approaching this from the wrong angle.
You don't need to do the actual testing yourself, use your skills to research work that has already been done on the subject and glean the information you want from those who have published the results of their efforts.

Just add a culture of bacteria and see if it dies or not. But a quick google search brought up many sites saying companies work very hard to keep antibiotics out. This one says that Canada has extremely strict regulations and practices to ensure that there are absolutely no antibiotics in the milk. So...

It's easier to buy the antibiotics, hormones and the milk separately.

In that case you don't want to separate them out -- you just want to measure their presence. Right?

If there were really any significant amount of antibiotics in milk, it wouldn't spoil as easily as it does...

Scientists know how medicines are processed by the body, and how they are eliminated -- excreted by the kidneys, broken down by the liver, and so on. I'm sure there are plenty of existing studies of which medicines would and wouldn't find their way into cow's milk and in what quantities,. If I were you, I'd start my research in a serious library rather than in the lab; among other things, you'll probably be able to find information about how they're doing the measurements. (I'm guessing spectroscopy and/or electropheresis...)
