It will work just fine, but it might cost about as much as the baleing and wrapping. The cost for the preservative goes up pretty quick if you have to bale it with much moisture.

Other benefits of wrapping it and making balelage are

1 shorter time curing/wilting it vs trying to get it dry enough for "dry" hay so less likely to get rained on and loose the leaves on the peas etc

2 the bales will be protected from weather until they are fed without having to put them under a roof

3 cattle love sorghum-Sudan balelage.

Disadvantages include having to handle extra weight and needing to move the bales promptly before or after wrapping. You would need a bale squeeze to move them after wrapping and I am sure it's best to leave them undisturbed once they are fermenting until ready to feed them unless the weather is going to be cold enough to prevent spoilage from any air leaks. No harm spearing them if you are going to feed them promptly.
