Run a wire around 'em and turn out the cows. They'll clean the stalks clear down to the dirt.

I use twine. Plastic twine by the way,doesn't work worth a darned. Freezes in and then you've got a mess of plastic in the manure.

Yup. Chain & bar baler, it should go pretty good for you. Stalks are miserable to bale tho....

Works great to over winter stock cows, just add a bit of grain, molasses, or soybean meal for energy and protein to keep them in good shape. Used as bedding for fattening cattle, they get a lot out of it too. Used to feed steers on a shelled corn and DoBoy protein pellet program, and steers chewed a lot of bedding too. Good source of roughage to keep the gut working.
