Starting from scratch

I’m 22 getting ready to finish college and have the opportunity to partner with a dairy on a couple of possible enterprises. One of which would be a hog barn. What kind of advantages are there to being a contract grower as opposed to buying my own shows and feeding my own pigs and vice versa? Are banks more willing to loan on a barn for a contract grower or is it about the same? Advantages of a hog barn over building a feedyard to feed calves out? I’m in central MO.
