You could do it that way, but another way would be to just wait until late in the summer when the first crop is old and withered and gone to seed, mow high and then collect. As long as you do not mow down low where second crop is lush, you will get very stemmy straw.
You could plant cereal grains, but other then winter rye that self seeds, but not all that well, I would sow with Timothy of if was harvesting dry straw for cob.

Thanks Travis. I didn't know about Timothy Hay, that looks perfect.
(Cause I don't have my property right know, I don't know what will already be there. I am just informing myself beforehand.)
