Cutting corn for hay

I planted 12 acres of corn for silage due to some mix ups round up got sprayed on non round up corn. It is waste high and dying. My question is can I cut this and roll it. If so what kind of feed value am I looking at. I know it will be no where near the silage but is it worth the diesel to cut and roll it? Thought is maybe get something out of it then drill some early wheat.

Thanks for any ideas

It's good for a filler, not much protein...grind and mix it, feed a protein supplement with it... they can eat a Whole bale and starve at the same time ...nothing worse than a cow losing condition during winter months
