The managers of a Lockyer Valley farm in southern Queensland say they are deeply saddened by the deaths of two contract workers in the weekend floods.

The men, aged 25 and 34, were pulled from Sandy Creek near Gatton yesterday.

Both were travelling to Mulgowie Farms on Sunday morning when they disappeared.

In a statement, the company CEO says they are working to support the men's colleagues.
