Interestingly, there is a Cannabis species that is fiber only but it falls under the same classification as marijuana in the USA and so is illegal to grow at this time.

This is a really good forage for deer, they love it. It grows tall so you can chop and drop it several times during the growing season. I would chop it and let the chickens have at the mulch layer so they can turn it into compost.

You could build a kiln that could handle say 1000 bf every two months and try to sell it dry at retail. That's how your going to make the most money. Whatever you do, I would not let a logger take those logs off the property...you will get taken advantage of.
