Safe to make bone broth with elk bones from the farmers market?

I've never made bone broth before. I was going to try making it tomorrow, but then I heard about this disease you can get from elk bones. Is this true? Are elk bones safe? I think it's from a farm....

Also, if it is safe, can I just put the raw bones (with some meat on them) in a crockpot with water? Simmer for hours? Sorry, I'm just so new to this.

Thanks people! I'm making it right now. It looks like it's leg bone or something....(actually, I don't think I'd really know just by looking) There's quite a lot of marrow, so I hope I survive. I I don't think there's any cartilage. I'm not sure if I'm making it right, but I'm doing my best! And hopefully it'll all be good...

good point, in fact, there are a lot of marrow free bones, which would be safest. In my case I only make broth with those because I eat all the marrow bones roasted. The prions are heat resistant, by the way.

Nobody's come down with a TSE from CWD-infected meat as far as I've heard. Nevertheless, I'd probably avoid the spine (as the TSE prions are concentrated there) when making bone broth.

almost certainly yes. Those would be farmed elk bones, and there is some sort of meat inspection.
