The electron transport properties and point contact spectra of melt-spun DyCu_{5} with the cubic phase (structure type AuBe_{5}, space group $F\overline{4}3m$) were investigated. It was found by ac-susceptibility measurements that below a transition temperature T_{m}=6.5 K this phase shows metamagnetism. Between T_{m} and T_{C}=14.5 K a spontaneous magnetization is found. Our measurements of electrical resistivity confirm the existence of two magnetic phase transitions in the compound. Furthermore, we present point contact spectra of DyCu_{5}-Cu heterocontacts which are directly proportional to the electron-quasiparticle interaction function. Apart from a peak at about 18 meV, which is characteristic of electron-phonon interaction in pure Cu, we observed a series of additional maxima at lower energy, which are connected with the allowed 4f-transitions from the ground state to excited crystalline electric field levels.
